Storm Water Management

Managing rain water is just as important for your home and business, as it is for plants!


Rain water needs to be skillfully  managed so that you live in a safe and healthy environment.  Too much rain water will cause problems to the foundations of homes and businesses which can cost thousands of dollars to fix.  Excessive amounts of water will also kill plants which are not suited to having roots in standing water.  We can help you with water issues you have around your home or business so that you can have peace of mind that your property and plants are protected.

As we move into the future, more and more states are creating laws which tell home-owners and business-owners to keep storm-water on their property.  This is because we are using old storm-water sewers which are losing the capacity to move all the rain water from new construction developements.  Law makers know that it is possible to keep the majority of rain water on a property, which creates a buffer for the water before it makes it's way to rivers and underground aquafers.  There is an added bonus too!  When the water is mitigated correctly, it will be filtered before it makes its way into our drinking waters, and some states are giving LEED credits to those who are taking the inititve to manage their own storm waters.
