Ford is an automotive dealer located in Petaluma. This area is known to
be very windy, and these winds were creating issues with the new cars
getting wet as the lawn was watered. Mix spray irrigation with wind and
shiny new cars and you get very unappealing water spots. Because visual
appeal is so important in their industry, the client was open to
exploring ways to solve this problem.
Synthetic turf was the best solution. Not only would synthetic turf address their water spot issues, but it allowed them to add 3 parking stalls to display their new vehicles, conserve water, and maintain the curb appeal.
We removed over 3,500 sq. ft. of turf and replaced it with synthetic turf and 3 compacted parking stalls. In addition, we removed 4 Raywood Ash trees to reduce the presence of surface roots and replaced them with 4 24 in-box Magnolia trees with fir bark around the base of each tree to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
