Whether you have a balcony or a backyard, a postage-stamp-size plot or an ample acreage, we can all find ways to tweak our spaces to help mitigate the challenges of extreme weather and to help restore ecosystem benefits, whether just a little or a lot!
We’re talking about native plants, alternatives to regular turf, new perennialism, flood and drought mitigation, pollinators, air and water quality, life after herbicides and pesticides, and more!
Our confession is that we’re coming from the point of view of sustainable stormwater. You can’t have healthy water bodies without healthy landscapes–the two are intimately connected. So if we veer off onto the topic of managing runoff and snowmelt, you’ll know why.
