Irrigation to support our environment
As an integral part of a comprehensive commercial landscape plan, irrigation is essential. After all, irrigation is what keeps plants growing and thriving even when it’s hot. Although Oregon’s winter is rainy and extra water isn’t needed, we also have long, hot and dry summers. Plants will suffer in those conditions, and your investment in landscaping could be wasted without irrigation.
Careful planning for the site and existing water resources
Commercial landscape irrigation takes more than laying down soaker hoses or setting up automated sprinkler systems. Many irrigation companies may not consider the details EarthTech studies.
Area of coverage
How much of the landscape needs to be watered? It doesn’t make sense to water everything in a large acreage. What are the options? We could create dry creeks in areas where water drains in the winter or use native plants for easy maintenance.
Meticulous measurement of water capacity on site includes pressure as well as volume of water needed for appropriate coverage. Flow, soil and the landscape plan could influence above ground, below ground or drip, depending on your goals for water usage.
Drought tolerant plants or native plants are often good choices for areas without irrigation. They can help reduce the volume of water needed to keep a landscape design thriving. We have both the resources and knowledge to match irrigation to plant requirements. Even with drought tolerant plants, we recommend watering for at least two growing seasons, until they are established.
Types of irrigation
Automated sprinkler systems or low-flow drip, irrigation technology has progressed in recent years when it comes to saving water. At EarthTech, we research and train to stay on top of new developments and new technologies which conserve water.
