Sustainable Landscaping and Design


Each year millions are spent on designing, building, and maintaining landscapes and hardscapes that use to many unsustainable resources. This practice does not conserve resources and depletes our water, contaminates the soil and water table and pollutes the air from the use of gas powered equipment. To save water a  'smart water' system is the best way to accomplish water savings

Sustainability in Landscape has many different meanings. Some define a sustainable landscape as a discipline that emphasizes plant health, soil condition, water quality, and resource conservation.  To be sustainable does not mean the elimination of fertilizers, synthetic compounds, petroleum based products and gas powered equipment. Rather, sustainability means the creation of outdoor spaces that utilize the three R's, 'reduce recycle reuse'. A sustainable landscape creates a natural and balanced relationship between the natural and man made environment.
