Sustainable landscapes are responsive to the environment, regenerative, and can actively contribute to the development of healthy communities. Sustainable landscapes sequester carbon, clean the air and water, increase energy efficiency, restore habitats, and create value through significant economic, social, and environmental benefits.

GARDENS RAINWATER / HARVESTING
A rain garden is a planted or stone-covered bed specifically designed to receive stormwater and allow it to be slowly absorbed into the soil. These depressed gardens collect rainwater running off roofs, driveways and patios. The collected rainwater is also used to irrigate plants in the rain garden. Rainwater harvesting has been used to collect and store rainwater for future use since ancient times. It is a great source of water for non-potable indoor and outdoor uses.
Infiltration galleries are underground systems that allow water to percolate into the ground. Runoff is directed into infiltration areas from rooftops, driveways, or other hard surfaces. These underground systems leave above ground space available for different amenities such as lawns, patios or recreational spaces.
There are several alternatives to traditional hard surfaces, such as concrete, interlock and asphalt that are more permeable and can help to reduce runoff and increase infiltration. Permeable hardscaping has wide joints or pore spaces that allow runoff to infiltrate into the ground. A gravel base is typically placed between the permeable hardscape practice and the native soils to store runoff and encourage infiltration.
With the never ending distractions of urban life, our brains are constantly on overdrive. Immersing yourself in nature, engaging all of your senses with no distractions has been proven to boost your immune system, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall happiness. We can design your space to your aesthetic preference and in a way which also benefits you.
Native plants offer the added advantage of boosting biodiversity and supporting pollinators and wildlife while requiring fewer resources to maintain because they are well adapted to local growing conditions such as soil and climate. Native plants evolved in the local area before European settlement. These trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and herbs evolved with local birds, insects, and other wildlife, providing them with some of the best sources of food and shelter. With a proper garden design, we will ensure you have the right plants for your property.
