Stormwater Management

Stormwater Management, Doylestown, PA Stormwater management, though not the most glamorous aspect of landscaping, is crucial in protecting our water resources and preventing flooding. It involves controlling and filtering rainwater runoff, ensuring cleaner water and a healthier environment.

Solutions To Integrate Storm Water Management Into Your Landscape

We know from experience that there are multiple ways to manage stormwater on a property, and we help with the following:

  • Rain Barrels - These handy containers capture rainwater from your roof through downspouts. You can then use the collected water to irrigate your plants, reducing reliance on tap water and minimizing water waste. Rain barrels come in various sizes and styles, allowing you to find one that fits your aesthetic preferences and rainwater collection needs.

  • Rain Gardens - These beautiful and functional features are essentially shallow depressions planted with native vegetation. They act as natural filters, capturing rainwater runoff from your roof, driveway, or patio. The water slowly infiltrates the soil, filtering out pollutants and replenishing groundwater. Rain gardens can add color and diversity to your landscape while providing valuable habitat for pollinators and other wildlife.

  • Permeable Paving - Traditional paving materials like asphalt and concrete create impervious surfaces that prevent water infiltration and increase runoff. Permeable alternatives like gravel, pavers with open joints, and porous concrete allow water to seep through, reducing runoff and promoting groundwater recharge. These materials are aesthetically pleasing and can create unique and stylish walkways, patios, and driveways.

  • Downspout Diversion - Consider redirecting downspouts towards infiltration areas like rain gardens or swales instead of directing them straight into drainage systems. This simple modification allows rainwater to be naturally filtered and absorbed into the ground, reducing the strain on drainage systems and preventing flooding.

  • Native Plantings - Choosing native trees and shrubs with deep root systems offers numerous benefits for stormwater management. Their deep roots help to loosen and aerate the soil, allowing water to infiltrate more easily. Additionally, native plants have lower water requirements than non-native species, reducing the need for irrigation and promoting water conservation.
