We LOVE the results of all of your effort! Sent pictures to Mom, a tough critic, and she said that she has never seen a better transformation... worth every penny.

Sustainable Landscape Practices

On site water retention-Through the use of aqua boxes, rain barrels and cisterns capture and re-use water for your landscape irrigation. Systems of all sizes can be design above ground or below ground to allow water directed from roof and surface water to be a benefit to your landscape.

Rain Gardens and Drywells. A rain garden is a raised bed in reverse: attractive native plants are planted in a spoon-like, concave area filled with a special soil mix. The depression collects rainfall runoff and allows it to filter into the ground. Native plants’ root systems help filter runoff pollutants. Dry wells are gravel filled excavations which receive rooftop runoff and encourage water to infiltrate into the ground.

Permeable pavers -Permeable paving allows rainwater to rapidly infiltrate and ender the soil where it is naturally filtered, rather than running off the land into storm sewers. Replacing impervious surfaces such as driveways and walkways with permeable paving reduces overall storm water runoff. Permeable pavers can be combined with water retentions systems.

Organic Natural lawn and plant care - Create a safe and chemical free lawn and landscape that will not contribute to the degradation of our streams, waterways and Chesapeake Bay. Convert your turf and plant care methods to our BEE SAFE Organic Natural Lawn Care System.


Conservation Landscaping:
Remove Invasive species, remove turf grass, use more native/drought tolerant plants- Replace you’re your traditional lawn with a more easily maintained gardens that are planted with native plants. These gardens will increase bio-diversity for plants, animals and beneficial insects as well as reduce the intensive use of chemicals and time it takes to manage your landscape.

 

 

 

 



Irrigation retrofits- Evaluate your existing irrigation system and determine how to make it as water smart as possible. We can use drip systems and more efficient time clocks to monitor soil moisture and apply the correct amount of water. Advanced systems can be monitored system via the Internet. Image source websites
