Water Management

Water Audits, Rainwater and Irrigation Optimization


Our goal is to help clients conserve water and increase water residency time while maintaining a healthy, vibrant landscape. Water audits provide essential information to:

  • Establish a baseline starting point to optimize purchased water usage and landscape health
  • Ensure an environmentally - and financially - efficient garden
  • Satisfy any regulatory concerns about usage, allotments, and penalties
  • Design systems that work with the flow of natural patterns

Audits may include:

  • Outdoor vs. indoor water usage
  • Detailed usage analysis per zone
  • Irrigation uniformity testing
  • Water and soil testing 
  • Organic fertility plan to maximize water usage by feeding the soil food web
  • Detailed improvement plan with specific recommendations on both plant selection and water/irrigation management
  • Landscape design plan to slow, spread, sink, store, harvest, reuse, and recycle water
  • Identify all water leaks and run-off
  • Storm water management

We work with you and your existing landscape staff, in English or Spanish, to implement any changes and offer years of experience converting highly technical information into easy-to-implement action plans.
