Frequently Asked Questions
How much will it cost? Each project depends on the scope of the work, materials requested and the size of the landscaped area. We will consider all projects and will work with any budget. If need be, we can also work on a project in multiple phases to meet with those budget requirements.
Will you install my (or your) designers design? Yes, we are happy to work with your designer's plans and install them to any specification. You can also work with one of our designers to plan your landscaping project and we have several that we work with.
What is Xeriscaping? Xeriscaping refers to landscaping in ways that do not require supplemental irrigation. It is promoted in areas that do not have easily accessible supplies of fresh water. Why Xeriscape? For most of the western United States over fifty percent of residential water used is applied to landscape and lawns. Xeriscape can reduce landscape water use by 60% or more.
Do I need to water in the winter? The decision to water depends on the plants. Plants adapted to dry winters, those well adapted to xeriscapes, will need no water. Some plants native to dry environments, such as the desert willow, prefer dry conditions during the winter. Plants native to moist environments will need supplemental irrigation during these dry periods.
For many of the trees and shrubs grown in our landscapes, the most critical time for irrigation is in the late winter as the buds begin to swell. This may be more than a month before growth begins, and this is the time when small absorbing roots form for many plants. These roots need moist soil to grow, survive, and do their job absorbing water and nutrients. If the soil is too dry at the time these new absorbing roots form, the roots may die and the plant will have a difficult time beginning growth in the spring. Other times in the winter, however, water is also necessary. Water is lost through twigs and stems, even when leaves are absent. This water must be replaced. Evergreens which have leaves through the winter lose even more water which must be replaced to keep the plant alive.
When the soil is frozen, it is difficult to successfully irrigate plants. Before the soil freezes and during warm periods when the soil thaws, it is possible to irrigate. Fortunately, when the soil is cold, the water is lost less rapidly and the plants need less water.
