A second LEED landscape point was completed for reducing irrigation water consumption
by more than 50% of the allowed volume. The goal was achieved by extensive use of
drip irrigation and low water use plant materials. The irrigation controller uses
real-time weather data to optimize run times.
The grass in the photos is a fine-leaf Fescue mix, not a turf type grass. The Fescue
will grow to a height of about 12 inches and should only be mowed once or twice each
year. The grass requires minimal water in the American Canyon area.
