New Technology, Techniques Green Your Yard

Irrigation:
New irrigation systems use drip tubing, low emitting heads, rain sensors and user-friendly computers to subtly deliver the proper amount of moisture to the landscape. Well-irrigated plants will be healthier and require less intervention with pesticides and other chemical treatments.

Plantings:
Local growers supply plant materials that are hardier and better suited to this temperate zone. These plants tend to need less water, fertilizer, and pesticide to stay healthy.  Delivery requires less fossil fuel.  We encourage the use of native plants.  Native selections support substantially larger numbers of beneficial insects.  These increased populations help to keep the local ecosystem active and healthy.

Lighting:
A low voltage light produces the same amount of light with significantly less energy expended than with line voltage systems. Longer lasting bulbs need to be replaced less frequently and this saves resources. A well designed system can limit the number of fixtures and,  more importantly, the overall wattage needed to light your property.
