Waterfront Landscaping

Shoreline landscaping is quite different from regular yard landscaping because it has a measurable effect on lake water quality.

A truly “green” shoreline consists of buffer strips, high phosphorus wicking plants, shoreline stabilization and anti-erosion plant systems. These elements all contribute to a healthy lake, pond or retention pond system by filtering out pollutants before they reach the water.

With careful design informed as much by science as aesthetics, a smart waterfront landscape design can prevent toxic algae blooms while also producing gasps of appreciation for its year-round beauty.
