At Balanced Environments, Inc., we believe in sustainable practices that not only beautify your surroundings but also promote water conservation. As the leading experts in landscaping, we are committed to providing you with tips and techniques to help you save water without compromising the health and beauty of your outdoor spaces.
Water scarcity is a growing concern, and by implementing a few simple changes, you can contribute to its preservation.

Here are some effective ways to conserve water while maintaining a vibrant landscape:

Optimize Irrigation Systems: Ensure that your irrigation system is in top condition, free from leaks or blockages. Consider installing a smart irrigation controller that adjusts watering based on weather conditions and plant needs, preventing overwatering.

Optimize Irrigation Systems:
mulch

Mulch, Mulch, Mulch: Applying a layer of organic mulch around your plants and garden beds helps retain moisture, reducing the frequency of watering. Mulch also suppresses weed growth and improves soil health.

Choose Native and Drought-Tolerant Plants: Selecting plants that are well-suited to your local climate and require less water is a smart choice. Native species and drought-tolerant plants have adapted to survive with minimal watering, making them low-maintenance options.

Plants with Similar Water Needs

Group Plants with Similar Water Needs: When designing your landscape, group plants together based on their water requirements. This allows you to water efficiently, targeting specific areas and avoiding wastage.

Practice Proper Watering Techniques: Water your plants during the early morning or late evening to minimize evaporation. Also, consider using drip irrigation or soaker hoses to deliver water directly to the plant’s roots, reducing water loss.

Monitor and Adjust: Regularly inspect your landscape for signs of overwatering or underwatering. Adjust your watering schedule accordingly to ensure plants receive the right amount of water for healthy growth. Our Hydrawise smart watering system can be controlled through your device.

Harvest Rainwater: Install a rain barrel or cistern to collect rainwater for later use. This sustainable practice not only reduces water usage but also provides a natural, chemical-free water source for your plants.

xeriscaping techniques

Adopt Xeriscaping Principles: Incorporate xeriscaping techniques that focus on water-efficient landscaping, such as using hardscapes, rocks, and native vegetation, to minimize water consumption.

By incorporating these water conservation practices into your landscape maintenance routine, you’ll not only save water but also reduce your environmental impact and lower your water bills.

At Balanced Environments, Inc., we are passionate about sustainable landscaping and would be delighted to assist you in implementing these practices in your outdoor space.

Together, we can make a difference!
