Rebuilding Native Habitat

Home Case Studies Rain Garden

If the only time that you walk on that patch of lawn is to mow it, it clearly doesn't need to be lawn.

Here, we replaced a patch of lawn that was always soggy with a small bioswale, infiltration pit, and associated native plantings. This thing will pop with color next year, and soak up a ton of stormwater from the adjacent patio!

As a bonus, this beautiful garden was completed for thousands of dollars less than the quotes for a French drain that the homeowner received.
