This property owner wakes up to a lake view and lush green grass. They know their property is contributing to a sustainable environment and protecting the water in Lake Simcoe. They know this because they have invested in a permeable driveway, rain garden catchment areas, downspout disconnects and dry streams around their home. The clients loves gardening and invests a lot of time and energy into maintaining lush green grass and annual planting schemes. This investment bear’s fruit as water directed from the downspout helps to irrigate lush planting areas. They can irrigate their lawn guilt free knowing they have collected all the rain water from their roof into a rain garden which captures, cleans and infiltrates into the lake at a slow rate to mitigate erosion along the roadway and shoreline. These clients can enjoy the view of the lake and have a sustainable beautiful garden.
