Water-Wise Landscaping? Fusion Landscapes? Xeriscaping? Native species? What the heck are they? More importantly, how can saving water actually benefit your landscape?
Water is a precious resource that many of us pay for, and all of us are trying to find ways to conserve. Worse is that we pay for it coming into our homes and leaving our home in sewage surcharges. When you water your lawn, or your gardens, you’re paying for that water twice! How unfair is that? There is a belief that plants need to be watered to produce beautiful long lasting blooms. Did you know that there are plants that NEVER NEED to be watered except by the rainfall that Mother Nature provides?
We can create a custom landscape for you that minimizes water consumption and collects it for future use. We’re not just talking about rain barrels! By creating gardens and features within your landscape that reserve water for future use then adding native plants which survive in spring’s abundant moisture and summer’s sometimes arid conditions, we design and build self sustaining landscapes. Colourful and elegant without the need to be watered, Fusion Landscapes attract pollinators and butterflies while reducing your carbon footprint. Uncompromising natural beauty, inspired curb appeal, all created for your residential back yard or estate landscape: wouldn’t that be awesome? We do that!
OHS has been a strong supporter of Water-wise Landscape Techniques and have been speaking about how to increase curb appeal using these techniques for many years. We know our stuff and have spoken at city run seminars and Canada Blooms on the topics. We show homeowners how to reduce their landscape water consumption by 25 to 75% annually.
