Just a Backyard?

Victorian Farmhouse Makeover
Following an extensive makeover of the backyard, our clients entrusted the landscape to us for growth and development. They wanted the landscape kept in a more natural state, yet neat and clean, despite the surrounding woods. We were up to the task and the judges agreed – award a Gold Award from the WLCA in 2021.
What People Are Saying
Green and sustainable are often used interchangeably, but they are actually different. The EPA defines sustainability as the “Creating and maintaining of conditions under which human and nature exist in harmony, that permit the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.
These take rain gardens a step further – capturing water from rooftops and storing it for use either for a water feature or irrigation. An example most people are familiar with is a rain barrel capturing water from a single downspout for use watering a garden. However, this captures a minimal amount and often is not the most visually pleasing.
Rain gardens are useful solutions in the landscape – they filter and slow down rain water pouring off roofs, across lawns and paving. Rain gardens capture the water temporarily in a basin where it percolates into the ground, recharging depleted groundwater. It also traps residues like fertilizers so that they do not pollute our lakes and streams. But most of all through thoughtful design and plant selection – they are beautiful!
Many of our clients want lighting for their landscape both for aesthetic reasons as well as safety. LED lighting provides ambient lighting at a 75 percent reduction in energy use as compared to conventional low voltage, halogen bulbs but with far longer lasting bulbs and fixtures.
Permeable paving functions as does a rain garden allowing water to infiltrate through the gaps in the brick pavers and into the ground, recharging depleted groundwater. Some systems have the ability to take in rainfall up to 11 inches per hour without shedding on the surface.
