Choosing the “right plant for the right place” is an important consideration for all types of landscaping. Ignoring this guideline may lead to increased maintenance, a failure of plants to thrive, and sometimes the death of installed plant material. Careful planning and site evaluation are the first steps in applying this concept. Trees and shrubs vary considerably in their ability to tolerate different site conditions and it is critical to select plants to match the existing growing conditions of the site in addition to their ornamental value. Even the best planting practices will not help a plant to thrive if it is poorly suited for a particular site. It is also important to know the mature height and width of selected plants so that they will not outgrow the space allotted to them.
Some site conditions to keep in mind when selecting landscape plants include:
- light availability, intensity and duration (full sun to deep shade)
- water availability, both quantity and quality
- exposure to wind and temperature extremes
- soil type, drainage, compaction
- hardiness zone
- competition from existing vegetation
- below ground conditions in urban sites
- above ground wires or obstructions
Irrigation & Sprinkler Services Save You Water & Money
Efficiently using water on your landscape should be one of your top priorities. Not only does the practice help you achieve sustainability while maintaining a thriving greenscape, but it also saves you money.
Regular Irrigation System Maintenance Is Vital
In addition to easing your irrigation system through seasonal transitions, regular checks throughout the prime growing months ensure any potential problems are taken care of before they waste significant water or cause any harm to the other parts of your system.
For instance, system leaks can cause water to pool in areas and not reach its target. Pressure problems in the system can also cause uneven watering. Too much water in certain areas can contribute to disease development in plants or root rot, which leads to the need for possible plant replacements in addition to system repairs. This is why repairing even one broken sprinkler head can ensure valuable water is targeted toward the plants that need it vs. the sidewalk or other areas that don’t, adding up to significant savings.
Annual or biannual irrigation audits also give our professionals a chance to inspect your system and ensure you aren’t spending any extra money on water that you don’t need to spend.
