San Diego is no stranger to drought. The constant sun and regular periods of little rain mean that droughts often occur in San Diego.
The City of San Diego is often forced to impose mandatory use requirements on its residents, sometimes limiting water use to mere minutes per week. These droughts aren’t ideal for grassy lawns. Instead of depending on a yard full of grass, perhaps it’s time to respect your situation and try something that doesn’t require quite as much water.
La Perv Landscaping is here to help. We are experts in which flora work best in our San Diego climate. We’ll help you establish and maintain plants that don’t need near as much water as grass.
Residential Drought Landscaping
For homeowners in San Diego, there is an important exemption you should be aware of.
That exemption: If you use proven water-efficient technologies and techniques, such as micro-irrigation systems, stream rotor sprinklers, and hand watering, you can water for hours instead of just minutes on any given drought week.
The problem is that installing these water-efficient devices isn’t always that easy. Especially if your yard contains any slopes, strips, scoops, or odd corners. And different plants have different watering needs – that’s yet another thing to consider. Also, what about shade?
That’s where we come in. As skilled drought landscapers, we know how to account for all of these variables and more and install your systems efficiently and effectively.
We have the expertise to know all the little tricks that can be used here and there to make better use of your water. For example, we’ll set our mowers to cut a little higher than average. This will greatly reduce the growth rate of your lawn, so it won’t need near as much water.
We’ll program your sprinkler system as well, capitalizing on the mornings and early evenings to eliminate (as much as possible) the evaporation factor, and we can program the system to stop operating when it’s already raining to further reduce waste.
Commercial Drought Landscaping
Luckily, the same water-efficient exemption also applies to business owners.
Any business that uses water-efficient devices or techniques such as micro-irrigation systems and stream-rotor sprinklers is allowed to water much longer than 10 minutes. You’re still limited to 2 days a week, but you can water for as long as you want on those 2 days. We will install and maintain such devices and systems for you so that your lawn and your plants can get the water they need to thrive.
