Green Homes Festival 2014

The 2014 Green Homes Festival at the Botanical Gardens on June 7th was a great success! Yes, stormy showers eventually chased us inside, but the event was fabulous nonetheless.  Despite the rain, a grand total of 3,781 people attended the show, which included over 70 exhibitors and vendors all focused on some aspect of green living.

Some of the highlights included local food, live music from Eco-Elvis and Wack-A-Doo, the Green Marketplace, activities for kids, and the great variety of educational opportunities for sustainable living.

Our Landscape Designer Rebecca chats with an interested party about our green products and services.

Our booth got a lot of attention because we were one of only two landscaping companies participating in the event.  It was a great opportunity for us to educate others about the environmental benefits of permeable paver patios, walkways, and driveways.

If you would like more information about installing a permeable paver patio, walkway or driveway in your landscape, give us a call to set up a free initial consultation.  And, if you didn’t make it to the Green Homes Festival this year, put it on the calendar for next year!  We’d love to see you there.

Time Lapse Video: Permeable Paver Patio Installation

Watch our expert team install a patio via this time lapse video. Our professional installation is highly customizable so that you get exactly the look and style that suits you best. Here, we demonstrate two different patterns of paver alignment: diagonal and horizontal.

Permeable paver patios are environmentally friendly. Rainwater can trickle through the pavers and soak into the ground instead of contributing to stormwater runoff.  Learn more about the benefits of permeable pavers.
