A rain garden and permeable paver patio that Quiet Village Landscaping installed in Maplewood.

Great news—the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s initiative “Project Clear” offers small grants to help improve water quality through rainscaping! As MSD announces on their website, they “will invest billions of dollars over a generation in planning, designing, and building community rainscaping projects, system improvements, and an ambitious program of maintenance and repair.”

Residents of participating St. Louis County municipalities can now apply for a rainscape rebate to establish a rain garden, amend the soil, or install permeable pavement, rain barrels, or even a green roof on their property. Find out if your property is included in the grant program focus area.

Quiet Village Landscaping can design a rain garden that adds beauty to your landscape while improving your property value. A rain garden is a great solution for existing drainage problem areas in your yard that hold water for hours—or even days—after a downpour. If your lawn has sections where turf refuses to grow and always looks patchy and weak, a rain garden may be just what you need.

By creating a shallow depression planted with a variety of attractive native plants, rain water can be held and properly absorbed by the soil to replenish groundwater supplies. This prevents rainwater from streaming off of your property to pollute and flood neighboring creeks and waterways, and it also provides food and refuge for native wildlife like butterflies and birds.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, contact Quiet Village Landscaping immediately since several deadlines are rapidly approaching. MSD requires all landowners to attend one workshop in order for your application to be processed. Remaining workshop dates include February 26th, March 3rd and March 7th.

Permeable Paver Driveway Installation

It’s okay to be jealous of this family’s awesome new permeable paver driveway.  Water will now filter directly into the ground and snow and ice will melt away more rapidly for these homeowners instead of melting and refreezing on the pavement.  Find out more about the benefits of permeable pavers at http://www.quietvillagelandscaping.com/benefits-permeable-pavers/.

Time Lapse Video: Labyrinth Installation

Due to the outrageous popularity of our time lapse video of the paver patio install, we bring you more Quiet Village Landscapers working extraordinarily fast to upbeat music!

A labyrinth is a maze-like pattern using various hardscape and softscape elements. Walking a labyrinth can be a calming and meditative process, relaxing and enriching the mind.  Plus, it adds an interesting and creative focal point to your yard.

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.
