Developing a Hotel Landscape that Meets California Water Conservation Requirements
California has many of the strictest water conservation laws in the nation. That can make it tough to maintain a beautiful landscape at a hotel. But customers have a lot of hotel options, and they certainly don’t want to stay a hotel that looks like it’s built in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Here are a few tips to help keep your hotel landscape beautiful while meeting state and local requirements.
Using the Right Trees, Shrubs, and Grass Reduces Water Needs
Water restrictions limit how often the landscape can be watered during the dry season and how many days you must wait after a substantial rain before you can water again. That means selecting native or well-adapted plant life that is equipped to survive in dry conditions.
West Coast Trees can provide expert suggestions that will help you to choose from our selection sustainable palm trees and desert shrubs and grasses. With the right plant life in place, your water needs will be reduced to the point where you many not even have to think about water restrictions.
Sustainable Landscaping Practices
Watering lawns in California has a significant impact on the state’s water supplies. As a result, it is important to choose sustainable options that include desert grasses, rock, and other groundcover options.
By working to improve the quality of the soil and irrigating efficiently, even less watering will be needed to maintain landscaping. Everything that can be done to benefit trees and other plant life, from proper pest control to pruning, will prove beneficial when it comes to keeping trees and shrubs healthy on a limited water supply.
