Local Limelight: Weeklyish Articles Of Interest

Weekly Watering Number
By Amy Whitworth, owner Plan-it Earth Design

If you have an irrigation system but are somewhat mystified about how much water to apply to your garden as the season progresses, listen up! 

We are all trying to conserve water and yet irrigation systems can be one of the worst water offenders around if not monitored regularly. 

We are getting close to irrigation season, and the Regional Water Providers Consortium has developed a scientific method to apply the EXACT amount of water each week to your landscape, based upon the rate of Evapo-Transpiration (a technical word for the amount of water lost to evaporation from the surface of the soil combined with the amount of water lost to transpiration from the leaves of your plants). 

Sign up to receive the Weekly Watering Number and get a preview of upcoming weather conditions along with information to set your irrigation controller accordingly.  While you're at their site, be sure to check out some of their other great resources such as their brochure on Water Efficient Plants of the Willamette Valley.

If you are thinking about installing a simple surface irrigation system to make your life a little easier, check out www.dripworks.com, a website that provides a list of parts needed and a free layout plan for installation of a drip system off of your hose bib.  They'll ship everything you need directly to your door, including timers and rain gauges.  If you purchase the system through Plan-it Earth Design, we can offer you a landscapers price for the system!

Plan-it Earth Design will work closely with you to provide a personalized, earth-friendly garden to fit your home, property, lifestyle and budget. Design-on-the-Fly is a popular service for the budget conscious homeowner interested in integrating your garden with your home.  A 4-hour design intensive consolidates the design process into one fun, collaborative, interactive event geared toward creating a plan of action that can be implemented immediately by you or a recommended landscape contractor.
