San Diego Commercial Drought Landscaping Services
The constant sun and regular periods of little rain mean that droughts often occur in San Diego.
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.
Le Perv Landscaping is here for you – with expert knowledge of which flora work best in the San Diego climate, we’ll help you establish and maintain plants that don’t need near as much water as grass. For example, Rosemary, Rockrose, Oregon Grape, Texas Ranger are all scrubs that are drought-resistant and do well in this area, and Crepe Myrtles, Australian Willows, Pindo Palms, and Fruitless Olives also thrive here.
And some of the best landscaping in this region gets rid of the need for water at all. If you’re interested in establishing rock features for their bold beauty and ease of maintenance, we’re more than equipped to help you out with such a project.
Working with Mandatory Water Use Restrictions
Indeed, San Diego sees more than its fair share of droughts. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on grass.
These is a challenge here, though: When mandatory water use restrictions are in effect (as they often are here), businesses are limited to watering their lawns for just 2 days a week, 5 minutes a session.
10 minutes a week is not enough watering time to give your plants the support they really need.
A patchy lawn is not only ugly; it’s unprofessional. Let’s face it: there are other businesses in town that do just about the same thing that you do at a similar price that you offer, and you’re all fighting over the same pool of local customers. You have to do everything you can to stand out and be as attractive as you possibly can be. And brown, dead grass sends the message that you’re second-rate: people will think, subconsciously or otherwise, that if your landscape is low-quality, your business as a whole is low-quality as well.
But wait! There’s an exception to the 10 minutes a week a rule – 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.
Having the greenest lawn in town might just be the advantage you need to convince a customer to patronize your business rather than a competitor’s.
