At Quiet Village Landscaping, we are passionate about thinking green. Even small changes in your yard or business property can make a big difference for your local ecosystem. If you want to make a positive impact this spring, here are some big and small projects that can help your yard be more sustainable and environmentally friendly:
Rain gardens are attractive and functional additions to every landscape. Designed to absorb rainwater so that runoff is reduced, rain gardens are green solutions to lawn drainage problem areas. We incorporate low-maintenance native plants that benefit birds, butterflies, and other local wildlife.
Reduce, reuse, recycle your rainwater. No need to send more runoff downstream. Conserve water to use for your landscape via rain barrels that attach to your gutters.
Install a permeable paver driveway, patio or pathway to allow water to seep through into the ground. Not only does this reduce runoff–it increases the groundwater for your landscape, positively impacting nearby plants and trees. Additional groundwater can be a valuable asset for your lawn during our hot and unpredictable St. Louis summers when we often receive little precipitation.
Trees provide habitation and food critical for your local ecosystem. Restore native species of trees on your property to restore woodlands. Talk to us about what you want to accomplish. Do you want to attract more birds to your landscape? Do you need more shade trees? Are you interested in installing fruit trees or flowering trees? There are so many possibilities.
