Sustainable Landscaping

Sustainable landscaping is: conservation of our natural resources, preservation of our “sense of place”, and protection of our wildlife.

Architectural Gardens specializes in the creation and preservation of wildlife habitats. It is our passion to create landscapes that are beautiful and sustainable. We incorporate native plants into our designs and use organic fertilizers (if necessary) along with integrated pest management (IPM) practices to have as little impact on our environment as possible. With sustainable landscaping comes storm water management and we can design drainage solutions that incorporate rain gardens, water harvesting, dry stream beds, rain barrel installation and shoreline plantings, in the interest of managing the storm water run-off that ultimately finds its way to the Chesapeake Bay.

Architectural Gardens chooses:

  • Meadows not mowers
  • Rain gardens not storm water runoff
  • Native plants not invasive plants
  • Harvesting water not wasting water
  • Encouraging wildlife not destroying natural habitats
  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM) not mindless pesticide applications
  • Composting not discarding
  • Organics not chemicals
