Recycling the Rain/Snow Melt

New permeable pavers and rainwater capturing systems allow us to create some beautiful yet incredibly functional designs. Here we took an old heaving sidewalk entry along side a 3 story Victorian and created a welcoming entrance. Rainwater off the roof is captured with a RainXchange System and used to supply the small pondless feature that is the garden focal. Microclimate perimeter plants round out the beauty and function of the area! Permeable pavements even reduce snow and ice build up in winter
