Dont Replace Your Commercial Lawn Maintenance Until You Read This

FloraTerra's landscape enhancement design team focuses on creating sustainable landscapes. By choosing compatible low water use plant alternatives, older lawn or ground cover areas are converted to beautiful seasonally flowering drought tolerant, insect and disease resistant shrubs, trees, and ornamental grasses.

Inefficient “overhead spray” irrigation is converted to efficient drip irrigation systems. “Smart” Irrigation controllers (solar powered available) apply water to current ET rates in the precise amounts of water needed to keep plant material vibrant and healthy through changing seasonal weather patterns. Surfaces are covered with mulch, cobble or bark. This results in the “sustainable landscape”; landscapes that are attractive, last a long time, save water, and use less fertilizer and pesticides to maintain. Our landscape conversions result in less water run-off and resultant damage to curbs, parking lots and other surfaces. Your new sustainable landscape is harmonious with the natural environment, and most importantly will conserve water and save money.

“Landscape Improvement Rebates can pay up to $30,000”

Business owners, Institutions and multi-family properties located in Santa Clara County may be eligible for receiving rebates up to $30,000 for replacing high water using landscapes, such as irrigated lawn or turf.
