San Jose Water Management – Commercial Landscape Services

Environmental values have helped transform California’s approach to water management. Does your commercial property align with the community’s goals of water conservation and management? Are you just spending more than you should on water and landscape management?

Water management is the practice of carefully planning, developing and distributing water resources under well-defined water practices. Water budgeting and management is an ongoing concern for most commercial properties.

Did you know these plant watering facts?

  • Watering to the root depth of your plants creates a healthier and more efficient garden.
  • For lawns in clay soil, this means applying ½ inch of water to moisten the soil to a depth of 6 inches; water shrubs even more deeply and less frequently. You can determine how long it takes to apply ½ inch of water by setting out several catch cans, running your sprinklers, and measuring the time it takes to fill them with ½ inch of water.
  • Lawns planted in very sandy soils will require less than ½ inch each watering day but more frequent application. Another method of determining how deeply you are watering is to water for five minutes, then probe the soil to see how deeply you have moistened the soil. Think of your soil as a reservoir that holds water for your plants!
