Think we can’t do anything about the pollution in the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay? Yes, we can! Landis Garden Design installs and designs Bayscapes and Raingardens on private residential properties in Washington DC. Partnering with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and the DC Department of the Environment, our firm consults with the audited client at their site, designs the garden, provides the native plants and installs these sustainable gardens for the program. The program’s purpose – to reduce rainwater runoff which contributes to sediment loss and river pollution. The RiverSmart Homes program provides free stormwater audits to identify the amount of runoff from impermeable surfaces on the owner’s site and subsidizes the installation of the native landscape suited to their site. The program also recommends and provides subsidies for rain barrels, shades trees and pervious pavement installations. Contact RiverSmart Homes to sign up for your Stormwater Audit.
