When we analyze a client residential outdoor project at IVY Studio, a landscape design and build consulting firm based in the metro Boston area, we always examine environmentally sound design options through our selection of sensitive design options.
When designing the landscaping component to the expanded outdoor environment, 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.
