Irrigation plays a key role in achieving healthy landscapes. For your lawn to thrive and stay healthy, you need to make sure turf areas are 100% covered by your irrigation system. Soil conditions, slopes, and sun exposure also need to be considered when designing your irrigation system.

This means that cutting corners won’t do your landscape any good. To avoid further costs arising from a poorly designed system, it’s important to have your irrigation correctly done from the beginning.

For flower beds and gardens, subsurface drip irrigation is best. This process involves minimal use of water especially during drought conditions. This will enable you to legally irrigate your gardens should water restrictions arise.

Our professionals at Bear Claw Landscaping will take note of all these factors in designing and building your irrigation system. Our job is to meet your landscape’s needs and deliver results as you envisioned.


Water shortages are becoming increasingly alarming, as they have been affecting more and more regions worldwide. In fact, experts are saying that droughts will become a global concern by the year 2020.

In places like Black Forest or Colorado Springs, Colorado, where the climate is semi-arid with the average precipitation rate falling less than half of the nation’s, it is vital to save water in every way possible.

Xeriscaping, also known as dryscaping, involves creating drought-tolerant landscapes and keeping water consumption to a minimum. Our strategy at Bear Claw Landscaping involves combining drought-resistant plants, mulch, and hardscaping materials in building or upgrading landscapes. We may also replace natural lawns with synthetic turf.

While this may seem like a picture of a drab landscape with rocks and cacti, a xeriscape actually allows for a variety of vibrantly colored blooms, shrubs, and trees that thrive even in arid conditions.
