Sustainability issues for landscaping include:
- Global Climate Change
- Air Pollution
- Water Pollution
- Water Shortage and Drought
- Stormwater Management
- Pesticide Toxicity
- Soil Health
- Fertilizer Run-off
- Non-Renewable Sources
- Energy Usage
A landscape that requires a lot of maintenance due to poor planning can require excess yard waste, use of gas powered machinery, or toxic fertilizers and pesticides. Installing materials that requires significant manufacturing, quarrying or transportation can have a negative impact on the environment. Improperly designed landscapes can create excessive stormwater runoff, insect infestations, increase water usage, and retain heat. We are your partner to ensure that your yard is beneficial to our environment for years to come.
Our EcoPro certified landscape designers use the following practices and principals in every outdoor space we create. This ensures a healthier environment for generations to come.
- Ensure efficiency of irrigation systems
- Reduce storm water runoff
- Capture stormwater runoff and infiltrate
- Source locally made materials
- Use drought tolerant plants
- Use plantings that don't outgrow their space
- Prevent & reduce soil compaction
- Protect wildlife habitats
- Support and protect pollinators
- Avoid use of invasive plants
- Prevent erosion and sediment loss
- Use energy efficient fixtures
- Operate electric equipment
- Design for future plant sizes
We all want to minimize our impacts on the earth. As stewards of the environment we will make sure that your landscape brings benefits to the water, air, and land. Call us today to create a certified sustainable landscape.
