There are many options available to reduce the exterior water use in commercial, industrial and institutional landscapes. Water savings can be achieved by making some simple changes in plant palate and irrigation methods, this can greatly reduce the water required for an attractive landscape.

There are many plant choices that use surprisingly little water. There are also several irrigation equipment upgrades that can increase your irrigation system’s efficiency which can result in saving water and ultimately saving money.

1. Smart Watering Systems include Subsurface Drip Irrigation 
Commercial property maintenance includes the evaluation of the drip system which is effective in tight planter spaces because it waters the roots of plants directly as opposed to over spraying on asphalt, concrete or adjacent structures. Pop-up overhead watering systems are ideal for larger turf areas because they can cover a large area efficiently and economically.

2. Use less and Drive It Deep

Watering less frequently will make the roots of plants grow deeper into the ground and make the plants healthier and more drought resistant, running irrigation systems during the night or in the early morning will allow for more effective watering since the sun isn’t out and the wind isn’t blowing. It is also suggested checking the pressure of your irrigation system; too high of water pressure will emit small droplets that are easily blown away by the wind.

3. Water at the best time

Commercial water management includes curbing the use of water during the heat of the day and may cause losses of up to 30 percent due to evaporation. Commercial lawn maintenance can prevent water loss by watering when the sun is low or down, winds are calm and temperatures are cool — typically between the evening and early morning.

4. Adapt Smart Watering Methods

Commercial landscaping services must be familiar with the settings on your irrigation controller and adjust the watering schedule regularly based on seasonal weather conditions. Or invest in a smart controller so your system can make these changes automatically.

5. Identify and Repair Leaks

Undetected Irrigation leaks can go on for years costing you thousands of dollars. New systems are available that monitor for leaks and stop the flow of unscheduled watering events.
