New Designs Help Impact Water Use In Commercial Office Landscaping

Creating commercial landscaping with low water use will help comply with the new water regulations for California commercial office landscaping as well as reduce utility expenses. Efficient water management is a huge challenge for property managers. Well-planned sustainable landscapes and green landscape maintenance practices are a great solution to rising water rates. Plus you’ll achieve the reduced maintenance costs you’ve been dreaming about. 


Low water use

Self-maintaining landscape experts can create a beautiful outdoor space with minimal irrigation requirements as well as implement effective water management techniques to further reduce your usage. Government rebates on converting to equipment that supports low water use is an additional benefit you can take advantage of.

How to lower water use in Commercial Property Landscaping?

  • Appropriate plant selection: Selecting plants that are suitable to local soil and weather conditions lowers your irrigation requirements.
  • Establishing hydro-zones: By grouping plants according to their water requirements and getting a landscape technician to calculate their ET (Evapotranspiration or the amount of water lost) rates, you can ensure each area receives the right amount of water. You can avoid wastage in the form of puddles or runoffs.
  • Implementing smart irrigation: Irrigation systems utilizing low flow drip and blubber heads maximize efficiency while smart controllers (with solar power options) deliver the precise amounts in keeping with changing weather patterns.

Self-maintaining landscapes with sustainable maintenance practices optimize use of existing resources including green waste. They support low water use and contribute to higher savings.

Commercial landscape maintenance service experts can guide your plant selection in creating a well-planned landscape maintenance that will withstand weather challenges, lower utility bills and reduce maintenance costs.
