Watergate Planting Renovation

Location: Emeryville

Project Type:

Size: 5 acres

Partners: Watergate Community Association


PGAdesign created design plans to renovate the existing planting and irrigation system throughout the Watergate development in Emeryville. Following Bay-Friendly practices, the lawn was reduced and replaced with water-efficient planting. Existing planting areas affected by required EBMUD work upgrading the sanitary sewer and storm line were replaced with low-water use plants. The new irrigation system, including subsurface drip designs and state-of-the-art technology that self-adjusts daily based on real-time weather conditions, fully complies with the rigorous standards of the current California Water Efficiency Code.
