Bioswale in Motion
I’m really excited about a bioswale project that my studio is currently working on. So excited in fact, that I had to write a blog about it. We are only in the preliminary phase for it, and hopefully things will progress in the coming weeks. If you don’t know what a bioswale is, don’t worry. I will explain it after the break, so read on. I’ll also give you more details and show you some images. Hope you enjoy!
This winter, I’m scheduled to teach a new class offered by the South Orange – Maplewood Adult School. The class is geared to help homeowner conceive and create their dream project for their yards. It will be held through a local adult education school in South Orange – Maplewood.
Sustainable Woods for Yards
We are continuing our "Envisioning Your Dream Project" series with new videos about materials and sustainability. This newest video covers a bunch of amazing wood products that can make your next project truly incredible. We look at several types of wood that can be used for fencing, decks, cladding and other elements for a landscape project. Also covered is how to maintain it, their costs and how to use them to get the maximum impact from your project. Click below to watch the video.
Many of our clients have drainage issues in their yards. This is especially true for backyards. Exterior spaces can become swampy and muddy after rainstorms or snow melt making the area uninhabitable. There are standard ways to address soggy properties, but I’ve come to see them as uninventive and not worth the cost. Instead, I work with clients to use solutions that enhance the lifestyle and usability of they yards that celebrate imagination and the environment. Recently, we finished a drainage project that encapsulates the potential for better options for wet yards that doubles as an amenities for living a better life.
Super excited to announce a new video series about how to envision a dream project. The series is made up of three videos. The videos take you through a step-by-step process from discovering and finding inspirational images to how those images can influence and transform your entire house.
The goal is to make this blog a resource for helpful tips and sustainable ideas. I create original content that shows projects in progress and the behind-the-scenes of installation. And, I try to have as much fun as I can doing it.
