Soil Amendments
To make the soil the most effective, we added organic material to the existing soil. This organic material consisted of part AquaSmart, which is a super-absorbent polymer-coated sand product that is available in the form of a straight additive for increased moisture retention and growth of plants, flowers, trees, and grass/turf with water savings estimated at up to 60%; part expanded shell and part compost material.

Irrigation
The overall system has been designed with more efficient nozzles to provide a more efficient coverage. We have installed 10 miles of drip irrigation in our new and expanded planting beds. This design showcases how important irrigation and proper watering is. We have been able to keep the Azaleas at the Gazebo because we have installed proper irrigation that meets with our Water Efficiency program.
