Watershed Friendly Landscaping Projects

Watershed friendly landscaping (WFL) is consciously designing spaces so the ecosystem acts as infrastructure and human stewardship produces a thriving biodiversity with yields for the home economy.  WFL integrates a synergy of strategies to make best use of available water resources in meeting site specific needs. Strategies include property assessment, creating a water budget, land forming (such as swales, rain gardens, and erosion control features), building healthy living soils, selecting micro-climate appropriate plantings, applying mulch, incorporating graywater, installing rainwater catchment systems, using effective irrigation systems, and on-going stewardship and management.
