Waterconservation potential of the groundcover species.
In this study, groundcover Rhagodia and Eriogonum showed the highest potential for performing well under limited water application. Rhagodia and Eriogonum
reduced need for inputs; and at the community level, such as increased public value for water and air quality protection, waterconservation, and protection of biodiversity ( Cameron et al., 2012 ; Hall et al., 2017 ; Pataki et al., 2011 ). However
Waterconservation efforts have recently intensified in the arid Southwest as a result of increases in urbanization and local drought conditions, which have resulted in reduced amounts of water available for irrigating turfgrass ( Ervin and Koski
As water availability for turfgrass irrigation has become increasingly limited, improving waterconservation has become an important objective in turfgrass management. Most research focused on turfgrass water use has been conducted in arid regions
windows during waterconservation periods. Thus, it has become increasingly important to examine cultural strategies for maximizing success during the early establishment period. A key component for long-term drought resistance in turfgrass is the
objectives. For moisture determination, ≈10 g of wet soil was weighed, dried at 100 °C, and weighed again. Gravimetric water content (GWC) was calculated as follows: For inorganic N determination, 10 g of dry soil was extracted in 50 mL of 1M KCl following
ecosystem services provided by green roofs in urban areas such as improved stormwater management ( Fioretti et al., 2010 ; Nagase and Dunnett, 2012 ), thermal insulation and energy conservation ( Jaffal et al., 2012 ), reduction of the urban heat island
