San Diego has experienced drought conditions for the last few years. Restrictions on yard sprinklers, car washing and use of ornamental fountains have been implemented. For example, a San Diego resident could be fined for using a hose without an automatic shut off.
What about El Nino? It helped some but did you know that all the coastal areas of San Diego County, as far east as San Marcos, send their rain water runoff to the ocean? It’s true. That’s why storm drains are labeled with, “No Dumping. Goes to Ocean.”
Even after the EL Nino rain, residents of San Diego don’t have to look hard to see the effects of drought. Our lakes are disappearing, sections of common area turf appear hard and brown and most plant material looks stressed.
Heaviland Landscape Management is doing its part to make the county less reliant on irrigation.
In the past year, Heaviland completed fifteen projects that resulted in approximately 156,000 square feet of turf removal. Those turf removal projects will account for just under five million gallons of annual water savings.
Heaviland also completed eight recycled water conversion projects in 2015. Those projects affected approximately 570,000 square feet of landscape and amounted to 14.75 million gallons of annual potable water savings.
In total, in 2015, Heaviland completed projects that will save San Diego over 19 million gallons of potable water, each and every year.
Water and resource management is part of what separates Heaviland Landscape Management from its competition. It’s the reason we included “management” in our company name. Property and Facility Managers could turn to more than a dozen companies if all they were looking for was mowing and trimming. Smart managers are looking for ways to reduce their water usage without reducing the appearance of their landscapes.
