Water and soil conditions
This area’s seasonal rainfall is an average of 42 inches in a normal year. This keeps the soil moist for growing trees, shrubs, fruits and vegetables for about 5 months after which supplemental water may be needed. Healdsburg and the surrounding areas in Northern California also experience drier years when only climate appropriate, including many native, plants will survive without additional irrigation.
Potable water usage is carefully monitored in this region during years of low rainfall. Gardenworks’ water management division develops irrigation water budgets and efficient systems, such as drip irrigation and weather based timers. This approach makes economical use of water. Excess water does not run off onto streets and sidewalks. Timers are set for watering when evaporation is less severe. Roof gutters and drain spouts may be directed to part of the garden to make maximum use of precipitation.
The soils in Sonoma County can vary a great deal. Healdsburg is on the Russian River in the region of Northern California with soils that are ideal for growing grapes that produce fine wines. These soils are easily modified for ornamental plantings.
Nurturing the soil with the right amendment such as compost and a covering of mulch mix is part of the landscape design process. This also involves selecting the right plantings that are easy to maintain while also complementing the architecture of a building. Landscaping with “curb appeal” increases the value of residential and commercial properties.
