Metro Vancouver’s weather can go through drastic changes in rainfall amounts throughout the year. Restrictions enacted by municipalities can also require adjustments to be made to irrigation systems. Our technicians will set systems to ensure they comply with all bylaws and other regulatory requirements.
Adjustments for weather conditions can help ensure that plant material is receiving adequate moisture during dry periods. This is done by taking into account soil conditions, the tolerances of different plant material, and other factors. Irrigation systems can then be set to maximize the effectiveness of watering in challenging conditions. Conversely, irrigation systems must also be adjusted to avoid run-off and puddling during wet conditions.
Seasonal adjustments help to manage the use of water and minimize waste, while ensuring that the health of valuable plant material is protected.
