HABITAT + PLANT INSTALLATION
The installation of specified plants based on customers needs and desires.
Slightly used water that typically feeds out of the bathroom sinks, washing machines and showers. This water is cleaner than black water (which is water from kitchen sinks and toilets) and can be re-routed and used to irrigate most garden plants. Utilizing the available greywater heavily reduces the use of potable water saving both money and precious resources. "Reusing greywater for irrigation reconnects urban residents and our backyard gardens to the natural water cycle."
Utilizes the waste water from washing machines by re-routing the drainage piping to directly irrigate the outdoor landscape. Natural soaps are recommended to maintain a healthy and holistic ecological cycle.
LAUNDRY TO LANDSCAPE
Cob is an ancient and inexpensive method of building using a mixture of sand, clay, straw or some kind of fibrous material, and water. With the correct combined ratio of materials, it can be resistant to seismic activity and is fireproof. Some examples of cob structures include ovens, benches, walls, and much more.
Unique and functional structures built out of materials that have been found, recycled and/or repurposed. This puts material to use that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
REPURPOSED + SALVAGED MATERIAL STRUCTURES
A patio space made of pavers that allows rainwater to flow through the surface and can be absorbed by the earth.
PERMEABLE PATIO + HARDSCAPES
The catchment and storage of rainwater for the use of landscape irrigation and fire protection. This can be done by using large tanks but the most natural and efficient method of storing water is in the ground itself using rain gardens.
