Drought Tolerant Designs for Our Changing Environment
We are focused on creating landscapes that are both sustainable & beautiful.
Drought Tolerant Design
Since 1953, our designers & contractors have been dedicated to creating a greener tomorrow. We understand that this commitment means being stewards of our natural environment. Drought conditions throughout California have reinforced our commitment to ensuring that our designs have a positive impact on our environment & our Valley’s most precious resource: water.
We begin each project by evaluating the current landscape’s watering systems & looking for ways to improve their efficiency. We take care to inform our clients of potential water savings & rebates that may be available through better design & management of their landscape’s irrigation. We also look for ways to reduce long-term maintenance on the irrigation system so that the water savings also translate into less headaches for our clients.
Beyond the nuts & bolts of your landscape’s irrigation system, our designers look at ways to transform your property into a more water-friendly garden design. Our team will suggest drought-tolerant varieties that will use dramatically less water & still give you a beautiful look season after season. Our designers will build a planting palette of eye-catching perennials, stunning succulents, & blooming native varieties to create a water-wise landscape for you.
As part of our water conscious design evaluation, we will also work with you to design a landscape with a smaller turf footprint. We understand that turf has its place in the landscape but due to its overwhelming consumption of water, it should be used where it will receive the most activity. Other areas, where grass may struggle or be rarely used, can be better designed. We will walk you through the many possibilities from expanding your planter beds, adding additional hardscape to your patio, or simply using decorative stone, to eliminate waste-full turf spaces. Whether you are looking to completely transform your garden or just take small steps towards using less water, we are here to help.
