In 2008, several water districts across the state began rationing water usage. As we enter another year of drought, limiting urban water usage will be essential as water costs are likely to rise.
Conserving and catching water is of utmost importance in ecological garden design. San Francisco Landscapes installs only the most water-efficient drip irrigation and sprinkler systems available.
Drip irrigation is the best method to give your perennial plants a deep watering with minimal overspray and runoff. The system drips water only where it is most needed, at the root ball. With the addition of a mulch layer over the drip lines, the system can drastically cut your water needs.
New advances in sprinkler technology have developed very efficient nozzles that minimize evaporation while maintaining matched precipitation for your lawn. Automatic irrigation systems are user-friendly and can be designed to be self-regulating, so there is no need to worry about reprogramming every season.
