XERISCAPE: LANDSCAPING WITH STYLE in the ARIZONA DESERT

       


Inspect the System
  • Before backfilling, turn on the irrigation system and inspect it for leaks.
  • Also check to see if each emitter is operating properly.
  • Make any necessary repairs, then run the system again as a final check.
  • Prior to backfilling, remove rocks and other debris from the surrounding soil. These might damage the pipe/poly tubing.
  • Backfill the trench half-way, lightly tamping the soil with your foot. Then fill it with water to settle the soil.
  • Backfill the remainder of the soil. Then water again.
