We Install Environmentally-Conscious Landscaping
San Diego is known for its temperate climate, but also for the fact that we are in a drought. Due to this fact, our company has worked to make our customers’ landscaping environmentally-conscious and drought-friendly. We know many property owners are concerned about watering restrictions and we want to help you with those as much as possible by installing xeriscaping.
We try to install native plants when we can since they are most likely to thrive in our area.
Popular native plants we install include:
- Texas sage
- Tuscan blue
- Western redbud
- Italian cypress
Popular Trees we install include:
- Orange trees
- Lemon trees
- King palms
- Crepe myrtle
If our contractors and arborists see date palms on a property, we will replace those with dactylifera palms. There is a disease spreading through our area called fusarium wilt affecting date palms, and we want to make sure to stop the disease before it starts on your property. Fusarium wilt spreads quickly and there is no cure for it, meaning if your date palms catch it, they will die. Our certified arborists are careful to make sure that each property we work on is heavily inspected for any signs of disease.
We Install New Landscape Beds & Renovate Existing Ones
When our company designs a project, we consider each step, whether we are installing new landscape beds or renovating old ones. Each of these requires our contractors to shape beds, plant new materials, and install new mulch. Mulching has many benefits, including soil protection and completing the aesthetic appeal of the landscape bed.
Our company specializes in older home restorations in the area and those require full bed renovations most of the time.
We Design & Install Drip Irrigation Systems
When our contractors add in new landscaping, we also add in an irrigation system that’s referred to as a drip irrigation system. These systems are designed to be drought-friendly and use about half the amount of water as a traditional irrigation system. The hoses are installed under the ground to help combat evaporation and they water the plants effectively while still adhering to any drought regulations in the area.
