Green Infrastructure for Your Business

Show off your business' sustainability ethic with streetside water harvesting.

Is your office or retail outlet on a sun-baked street with little shade and no appeal? We can help you transform the street in front of your business into a shady, inviting lane. Curb cuts or curb cores combined with basins capture stormwater flowing by to irrigate shade trees and native pollinator plants. Our project managers are experienced in directing excavation, navigating utilities, and managing the permitting process to transform that under-utilized barren strip into a lush native garden to create an inviting walkway and pleasing approach to your business.

Green Infrastructure can be easily integrated with Rain Gardens, and plantings can be complementary to your Urban Orchard, to extend your complete landscape transformation into the right of way.

Green infrastructure, also called low-impact development, refers to constructed features that use living, natural systems to provide environmental services, such as capturing, cleaning and infiltrating stormwater; creating wildlife habitat; shading and cooling streets and buildings; and calming traffic.
