The focus of this program is to encourage homeowners to create and maintain landscapes in ways that minimize environmental damage. This will include looking at water quality and conservation, reducing stormwater runoff and decreasing nonpoint source pollution of surface water, enhancing desirable wildlife habitats and creating functional, attractive landscapes.
Landscape design combines art and science to create functional, aesthetically pleasing and ecologically sound surroundings that complement a home or other structure.
This handbook forms a solid resource for do-it-yourselfers, but what if you lack the time, desireor ability to tackle your own landscape work? Landscaping companies offer varying types ofmaintenance services.
