Irrigation What a
necessity in North Texas! The foundations of our homes require water to
prevent cracking. Our landscapes are even more needy. Irrigation and
landscape design go hand-and-hand. Efficient watering is essential for
proper plant growth and ease of maintenance.
Excess irrigation can
rob plants of valuable nutrients by leaching nutrients away from plant
roots. A properly planned system considers turf and bedding areas and local
water requirements and/or restrictions. We consider current water pressure,
expected population growth, and anticipated water availability. We then
design the proper system for your custom landscape.
Using Mulches Proper mulching is mandatory in this area. Mulch conserves
water by reducing evaporation. It inhibits weed germination,
prevents soil compaction and can lower soil temperature
by 20-25 degrees in an average Texas summer. Reeder's
Landscaping uses shredded hardwood mulch that breaks down
over time, adding essential (organic) nutrients to the soil.
Proper drainage is very
important to your whole property. The lack of proper drainage can result in
flooding, plant drowning, and foundation cracking. We offer a variety of
solutions for drainage problems.
