We all love the visual aspect of landscaping—the lush, beautiful trees, the freshly-trimmed lawns and the rows of flowers in every color. But did you know that the landscaping features we can’t see are just as important as the ones we can?
Water management may be an afterthought for many business owners, but it’s at the forefront of what we do at Duval Landscape Maintenance. In today’s blog, we’ll show you how this often-overlooked aspect of landscaping can make (or break) the look and function of your space.
It fuels your healthy landscape
Fertilizers, regular care, and special tools can make any landscape stand out—but not without the help of one of nature’s simplest resources, water! The same water that we use to our own benefit (and survival) for drinking, cooking, cleaning and bathing is used to fuel the natural life of your commercial landscape.
Of course, there’s always the possibility of having too much of a good thing, even when it comes to water. Water management is where nature meets planning—we use our experience and careful measurements to determine how to best supply your space with just the right amount of water.
It keeps your customers happy
Your customers, of course, will be impressed to see the vivid green, healthy look of your commercial landscape—but what they may not realize right away is how your water management system is keeping them safe and dry. Part of effective water management means draining water efficiently and keeping common areas (like sidewalks, stairs, etc.) clear of water from recent storms or showers.
It’s good for the environment
If eco-friendliness is important to you, you’ll be happy to know that effective water management can help to improve the environment (both your local surroundings and the world in general). When water management is done right, it uses only what is needed to create beautiful, healthy green spaces—what it doesn’t need, it carefully reroutes into the environment in a safe and effective way.
