Why Design a Landscape? It's about solutions...
A well designed landscape can save you money on utility bills and maintenance and increase the value and comfort to your home.
Create rooms to extend your outdoor living space and the functionality of your property.
Issue: This back patio area had been a small concrete slab, and there was a pool that collected at the back door when it rained.
Solution: Install french drains to channel water into the garden where it could be used by plants. Pallet walls constructed to create a socializing space and "windows" into larger backyard, raised garden beds for herbs, vegetables or flowers, create a boarder and contain larger pebble patio area.
Choosing a variety of plants appropriate to the climate and the placement in the yard can give you beauty and result in a friendly habitat for birds, insects & animals. A well placed appropriate tree can give you years of energy saving, whereas a poorly chosen or placed tree can cause excessive maintenance issues and the expense of replacement
Being water wise does not mean all rock or no color. Your garden design can have a great degree of variety and still limit added water and chemicals.
Sustainable Landscape Design can create an ecosystem that helps to perpetuate moisture and nutrients in the soil while limiting the waste and maintenance and creating habitat both above and below the soil level.
Sustainability also means sourcing local products and reusing materials whenever possible.
