Posted by Gene Ebertowski, President on Sep 22, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Water costs continue to escalate the bay area, but does anyone really know what the cost of water will be in the next 10 years?, but there is one thing for sure, the cost of water is like taxes, it likely that it will not go down. With many municipalities and water agencies requiring strict water rationing in order to reduce the use of water, do you think these restrictions will force you to choose between a light brown, deteriorating landscaping and expensive water penalties?, think again because you haven’t looked at the newest commercial landscaping trends available.

We’ve all experienced the cost of traditional commercial lawn maintenance in San Jose; that need excessive amounts of water, requiring a large amount of fertilizer and maintenance. Or the broken sprinkler heads that shoot the geyser of water high into the sky, watering everything but the lawn. Beautiful variations of contrasting colors of rock and fairly sparse plantings can evoke the effect of a healthy landscape that’s soft on the eyes. Planned and installed correctly,a commercial landscape service that provides drought friendly landscaping can have a beautiful and long-term effect that can potentially reduce outside water costs by up to 50%.
