We are experts in this area. We are Creating Ideas Construction & Landscape.

Irrigation and drainage play an important role in the wellbeing of live landscaping. You may feel that going outside with the hose and spraying plants with water is enough. It's actually not because when you water with the hose, you could be wasting water, and as we all know, water is a valuable resource. A hose sprays out a lot of water quickly. It's usually more water than the soil and therefore the plant can absorb. The result is water run-off. Instead of the water staying where it's directed, it rolls away downhill. It may end up in the street. On the other hand, an irrigation system releases water slowly so that it can and does get absorbed. The result is more water getting to the roots of the plants, and less of it is wasted.

Drainage is also important for your property. Water that is allowed to pool in an area can harm plants, and may even find its way into your home. Plants that sit in puddles of water can end up turning yellow, dropping their leaves, and may even wither away. Just like too little water is bad for plants, so too is too much water.

Call us to install an irrigation system or a drainage system that will help keep your landscaping plants healthier and happier. Water is important, make sure it's helping and not harming your landscaping.
