Landscape irrigation is as much about water conservation and management as it is about sustaining your investment in landscaping. The goals of resource efficient irrigation are to balance landscape design, irrigation, and drainage to rainfall while maintaining needed nutrient levels.

Most off the shelf irrigation systems are the number one user of household water in the Pacific Northwest. In most cases this is potable water of a quality far above required levels for landscape nutrients.

Plants and grassess absorb water at a much slower rate than these types of irrigation systems provide. The result is over-watering, potentially damaging plants and over spray sending wasted water into waterways.

May Creek Landscape balances the introduction of nutrients at the lowest levels to sustain healthy, thriving grasses and plants. Matching landscape design to local soils and natural hydrology can significantly reduce, or eliminate, potable water consumption.

Sustainable Irrigation Innovations Things to know
  • Smart irrigation technologies based on signal or sensor data match local weather to irrigation schedules reducing resource consumption and runoff.
  • Well placed rainwater collection, storage and reuse can supplement potable water use.
  • Hard and soft elements of the design can balance the needs of irrigation and nutrient resources while maintaining beautiful landscapes.
