In San Diego, we are fortunate to have sunny, blue skies more days than not. Unfortunately, this lack of rain creates a dry climate that requires extra water conservation. There are a number of ways you can create a landscape that is good for the environment, without sacrificing beauty or color. The most essential aspect of maintaining a healthy landscape is proper irrigation design, and with southern California’s local restrictions, it is even more crucial now than ever. Bradley Landscape Development is at the forefront of irrigation and water conservation in San Diego.
There are many local San Diego drought-tolerant plants and water conservation techniques available, and Bradley Landscape Development incorporates the latest techniques and technologies in designing and maintaining a healthy, water-wise landscape. We can help you create a conservation-conscious landscape and irrigation system that keeps your plants flourishing.
Water conservation techniques are constantly changing, and we understand how to work with the needs of various plants rather than against them. Not only are you able to help the environment, but with a proper water conservation and irrigation system in place, you can save on your monthly water bills as well: a win-win!
If you have questions or concerns about water conservation and irrigation systems in San Diego, be sure to contact Bradley Landscape Development for more information!
Tips for Saving Water:
1. Choose low water use or drought tolerant plants in your landscape.
2. Only irrigate three days a week.
3. Check & adjust your irrigation systems at least once a month to inspect for leaks, overspray, and broken sprinkler heads.
4. Immediately replace and repair any damaged or leaking parts and connections.
5. Water only during off-peak hours (before 10 am and after 6 pm) when temperatures are cooler, to reduce evaporation.
6. Upgrade any out-of-date irrigation systems to those with water-saving emitters, moisture sensors, and smart sprinkler controllers.
7. Use mulch or ground covers in all planter beds to reduce evaporation and save hundreds of gallons a year.
8. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways, sidewalks, and patios.
