Water Efficient Landscapes

Landscapes are essential to the quality of life in California. At DVD, we ensure that our designs not only meet the bare minimum requirements for a public park, but that they make life better. One step towards doing this are creating designs, installations and maintenance that can and are water efficient.

It is no mystery that California faces a challenge of limited water supply. That is way at DVD we incorporate new methods and techniques in our landscape designs for efficient water use. Here are just a few methods we utilize to ensure your landscapes are conserving water:

  • Regular maintenance of irrigation systems
  • Education of residents and city staff regarding the importance of efficient water use
  • Preventing over spray, irrigation runoff and low head drainage
  • Water-efficient landscape designs using low water-use plants
  • Efficient irrigation systems

Our designers at DVD will work closely with your city in order to design a water wise landscape design. Reach out to us today to go over the many ways we can incorporate water efficiency to make the quality of life in your public landscapes better.

DVD Stands Behind Sustainability

DVD is committed to creating public landscapes that create a community while remaining unique, beautiful, and importantly: sustainable.

Our affiliation with LEED, or the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, allows us to identify and quantify the sustainability of our designs. To DVD, Sustainable Public Landscapes means moving forward in the world of design landscape by responding to the pressing environmental land and cultural challenges and initiatives. These challenges and initiatives include an array of little changes that make a big difference in the long run. Low water use, low maintenance native plantings, and landscapes that are designed to be in balance with the local climate and environment while requiring minimal resource inputs are just a few examples of the sustainable efforts DVD puts into their projects in order to meet current trends and requirements.
