Landscape as an escape

There is emphasis is on creating commercial landscape spaces that people can interact with and move within. Being outdoors can boost morale and something as simple as including walking and biking paths encourages people to get outside. Eating areas, scenic views and even spaces for activities like barbecuing can all help to foster a relationship between people and their environment.

Water conservation is key

Water conservation and management is imperative in the San Jose area. At Gachina, our certified landscape technicians have a wealth of experience with water conservation. Designing landscapes with low-water use plants, especially native plants that are already accustomed to the dry climate is important, as well as using the latest irrigation technology to be sure your landscape isn’t being under or over watered. Smart controllers, drip irrigation and matched precipitation

Working with the climate

It’s important to work with the climate you’ve got. Keeping climate in mind when designing landscapes is crucial from a water conservation perspective but also for creating an enjoyable outdoor experience. Including shaded areas for sunny properties and heated areas for cooler environments makes being outside more pleasant.

Sustainable practices are good for the environment and your wallet. Sustainable landscapes protect the investment with environmentally-friendly and sound horticultural practices that are self-perpetuating over time. We promote pollinator friendly practices and offer 100% organic landscape services if preferred.
