Design & Consultation
Board of Directors at HOAs and commercial property managers turn to Pacific Properties Service for water-saving solutions in the maintenance of their landscapes. By following basic principles of water-wise landscaping, our water management specialists assist our clients in solving over-watering issues. Some of our management principles are:
• Limit non-functional turf. Non-recreational areas can be converted to either a) drought tolerant shrubs and mulch, or
b) synthetic turfgrass.
• Install the proper irrigation, and do not over water. Make sure that conventional sprinklers are used for turf, while low-volume irrigation, such as drip, is used for trees, shrubs and perennials.
• Minimize water runoff with drip irrigation.
• Use smart controllers.
• Improve the texture of the soil by adding amendments. Amendments can increase water retention and improve drainage, depending on the soil composition.
• Use a two inch layer of mulch around trees and shrubs to help the soil retain moisture. Mulching of the planter beds also inhibits weeds.
• Plant trees to lower the air and soil temperatures, thereby reducing plant and soil moisture loss.
• Use low, spreading shrubs and trees to cover large slopes rather than shallow-rooted groundcovers.
By following the above water management policies, Pacific Properties Service maintains beautiful landscapes and, at the same time, conserve water.
