This month we wanted to show off our Kilburn place project. This project was completed at the end of 2021 and we are very happy with how it turned out! Here are some of the project highlights!
The main problem the owners had here was that the sump pump kept filling up and spilling over, resulting in a wet basement and driveway. This led to an icy disaster whenever the temperature dropped below freezing. A great way to combat this problem is to create a rain garden with native plants, which is exactly what we did!
A rain garden helps increase rain runoff reabsortion and therefore get rid of muddy yards and icy driveways. It also helps to filter stormwater runoff before it goes back into local waterways and provides a sustainable habitat for wildlife, including birds, bees and butterflies. We of course did a percolation test to select the perfect spot in the yard for this garden. We were going for a highly beneficial, sustainable space that solved the problems that the owners have been dealing with since they moved in and here are the results!

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.
