Turf is an excellent conductor of surface water but not always the most sustainable or available option.  Ideally, surface water should be allowed to soak into the earth and recharge the groundwater.  How do you keep water away from your structures and prevent it from eroding your site while keeping it on your site.  Let the storm water experts and watershed stewards at Stormwater Professionals specify and design your complete storm water action plan.  We plan for the gentle soaking rains and the torrential downpours through the use of everything from custom state –of- the- art surface drains to rain gardens.

Bioswales

Erosion Control
Erosion Control

Drystreams and bioswales work to slow down water, spread out it out, and infiltrate it into the soils below, reducing erosion and sediment runoff.

Prior to the design and installation, this turf-slope carried fertilizer and sediment into the river. Native and non-invasive plantings were used to reduce runoff, absorb water, provide food for pollinators, and enhance the nature of the site.
