Water Conservation Lessons From California
- California has faced droughts for decades, leading to conservation measures such as landscape redesign and irrigation restrictions
- Landscape design changes have included using native plants and using alternative materials such as rocks instead of turfgrass
- Irrigation restrictions have included limiting watering times and days, as well as using drip irrigation
- Landscapers can learn from California’s measures by designing water-efficient landscapes and educating clients on water conservation
- Landscapers can also benefit from using technology such as weather-based irrigation controllers and soil moisture sensors
California’s years of drought have led to innovative water conservation measures, including redesigning landscapes and implementing irrigation restrictions. Landscapers can learn from these measures by creating water-efficient landscapes and educating clients on water conservation. Technology such as weather-based irrigation controllers and soil moisture sensors can also aid in water conservation efforts. By prioritizing water conservation, landscapers can not only help preserve this valuable resource but also set themselves apart in a competitive industry.
