Once San Diego finally decided to make up it’s mind, it decided to be summer. It is hot out there. We wanted to give some innovative ways to beat the heat, save some water, and make your landscaping absolutely stunning. Freshening up your landscaping may include water features, lighting, dry river beds, DG pathways and more. Here are 4 ways to improve your landscaping, and be on the edge of landscaping innovation!
High Tech Irrigation
Much the irrigation we maintain is 20+ years old. Automatic timers are good, but soil sensors that test soil moisture and nutrients are better. Timers that can program multiple start times are good. Timers that download micro-climate updates and program themselves on a daily basis to apply the property amount of water for specific plant material types, soil conditions, and slopes are better. Your “tech” applying water to your landscape is important, it can save you money, and it can make your plant material shine.
Consider a “Green Roof”
A green roof is a unique an innovative way to reduce building temperatures in dense urban environments. It may require adding raised planters, drainage, irrigation, and more. Contractors, managers, and owners are looking for unique ways to bring beautiful landscapes to their buildings. Employees, home owners, and communities are improving with the use of a green wall, or green roof.
Lighting can be one of the best things you can do to accent buildings, walkways, and landscaping. Adding LED lighting to walkways, stairs, or accenting trees and plant material with up-lighting can bring fresh new life to your natural features. Plus, there are a lot of ways to customize your lighting with colors, and different placement to accent different aspects of your community/property when you need to.
Also called “placemaking”, create an environment people want to gather in. Think parks, benches, walking paths, water features, sculptures, playgrounds, etc. This is a main feature of some of the most innovative places to live and work. It takes thought and design to get your place of work or living to be an place of enjoyment.
