Irrigation Choices

This garden is designed very well but it is also irrigated very well. They try to use plants that are drought tolerant and tolerant of Ohio's conditions, however they do have to ensure survival, especially during establishment. These plants were planted in September, in order for them to be hardy enough for winter the roots needed to be well established. They use a pop up sprinkler which is an industry standard. They must be pop up to get over the foliage but they also must be low to the ground, otherwise their snow plows would shear them off. An intelligent use of water.
