As a leading Bay Area Landscape Service, here’s what we have learned over the last couple of years about eco-friendly landscaping, plants we once thought needed tons of water to thrive and bloom and are doing just fine with a fraction of the water once used. Our Corporate Campus Landscape Management continues to stay green and is blooming in spite of the mandatory drought restrictions mandated by local water agencies.

Here’s the message: We can stay green and save water.

Recently, many property owners and managers have decided to move in the direction of sustainable landscapingour commercial landscaping company includes removing water-loving lawns and replacing with drought tolerant plants, crushed gravel substrates like pea gravel, decomposed granite, or mulch. We have witnessed many properties with the addition of a few plants and random placed succulents in and around the property that created some dry and boring looking landscapes. Not the picture we are after.

We all know the cost of water is on the rise with corporate and multi-building landscaping and we know managers are looking for cost effective alternatives to battle the drought.

In addition to commercial lawn maintenance, one of the biggest advantages of using drought friendly landscaping includes succulents, as they are much more resilient and last longer than traditional annual flowers, and the maintenance is almost nothing. Succulents can be used in a variety of applications including raised planter beds, vertical containers, and flower pots and there colorful foliage can be mixed with a variety of flowering plants and perennials creating a colorful landscape.
