When we analyze a client residential outdoor project at IVY STUDIO, LLC, a landscape design consulting firm based in Massachusetts, we always examine environmentally sound design options through our selection of sensitive design options.
This is true when it comes to aquatic focal point features like the swimming pool and spa and the equipment that functions their operation and cleansing. Also true for new and cleaner disinfection technologies, hybrid, electric, gas and solar heating options and low consumption L.E.D. lighting.
When designing the landscaping component to the expanded outdoor environment featuring pool and spa, we also examine sustainable landscapes that are responsive to the environment and are regenerative and can actively contribute to the development of healthy communities. They help sequester carbon, increase energy efficiency, clean the water and air, restore habitats and create value through social, economic and environmental benefits.
Some of the environmentally friendly ideas that we infuse in our designs include the use of native plant species, limited use of traditional water dependent grass and turf and instead adaptive ground cover choices that help manage rainwater and storm water runoff. We utilize drip irrigation watering systems that have rain gauge override systems incorporated. Additionally, we use recycled paver materials that allow for efficient water permeation, while still being attractive.
