In the Mediterranean climate it is almost essential to provide the garden with a good irrigation system. Due to climate changes, this requirement extends to other regions, especially during periods of heat and drought. Therefore we equip the gardens with automatic irrigation systems that are always custom made respecting the needs of used plants. Moreover, before designing a garden, we analyze plant species suitable for the site, taking in account the available water resources and its quality.

There are many ways how to install garden watering, we always chase for a system that meets the needs of the landscape and we make it as discrete as possible not to disturb any view. Some types of irrigation and its control are given below.

Reforms of existing and obsolete watering systems

Irrigation devices are in continuous development and their innovative properties save much more water than ever. As the price of water tends to rise, its saving is becoming increasingly popular, without mentioning here the ecological reasons that are pretty important as well.

A thorough reform, however, in many cases just a simple reparation or cheap adjustment of the system, may conclude into amazing results. There is an additional effect of these adjustments, you get additional savings on electricity bills. Precisely, this is what we do, the procedure consists of:  

- examine the system, irrigation emitters, pumps, piping, valves, fittings and other components

- detect possible leaks and fix them

- check the watering times adjustment

- work out a study how we could achieve additional savings and quantify them in currency

- compile a customized list of tips on saving water and energy within the irrigation system
