Rain Gardens for Your Business

Use water-harvesting earthworks to shape and sculpt your landscape.

You'll capture the rainwater pouring off your roof or hardscape to create a lush, water-conscience landscape. We’ll create a custom design and grading plan for your site to meet your needs and create a functional and aesthetic rain garden.

Rain gardens are a simple, low-cost way to take advantage of the rain that falls on your property to support shade trees and other native plants that improve cooling, beautify your landscape, and improve your soil. Rain gardens can also help resolve flooding, ponding, and erosion problems. This is an ideal first water-harvesting system and can also be integrated easily with Rain Tanks and Green Infrastructure.
