Proper water management is vital for a healthy landscape. No other
maintenance practices have more of an impact on plant and turf
health than irrigation, yet proper coverage and programming is
where most mistakes in the landscape are made. When stressed,
due to over (or under) watering, plants develop unhealthy root
systems and become more vulnerable to pests and diseases. At the
same time, because water is a limited resource, it is critical
that we approach watering practices with an eye toward the
environment and appropriate conservation efforts. Sadly, more
plants die due to wasteful over-watering than under-watering,
because system design and programming is improper.

We establish watering strategies
based on the types of plants and soils in your landscape. We
test percolation rates and soil profiles to determine the water
holding capacity of the root zone material;
this provides information for us to correctly program your watering
schedule. During the growing season
watering requirements change constantly due to Mother Nature.
We make adjustments, accounting for fluctuating temperatures and precipitation levels, so that the landscape is always beautiful and no water is
Our irrigation specialists not only manage and maintain
irrigation systems, but also design and install them. For
example, we can help you determine if an overhead spray or
underground drip system is more appropriate based on the plant
species. We will design systems that maximize efficiency and
provide matched precipitation rates throughout the entire
coverage area. Keen attention to sprinkler spacing and nozzle
sizes, along with proper water pressure and pipe size
calculations, are just as important as correct programming. This
will ensure happy, healthy plants and no areas left high and
Low-voltage lighting in the landscape can be functional and artistic. Pathways, steps and grade changes can be made more secure with the appropriate lighting. Lighting effects can create a mood, highlight a specimen plant, pond or stone feature, and create visual depth in your property at night. We can design a plan that includes uplighting, backlighting, shadowing, silhouetting, path-lighting, cross-lighting and glowing effects, depending on the atmosphere and mood you’d like to achieve. We design our systems to allow for flexibility and expansion as your landscape evolves.
