E-Landscape Looks Back on 2010

January 24, 2011 at 3:11 pm

As a landscaping company, we take pride in the fact that we are able to provide aesthetic enhancements to the built environment.

In 2010, we were able to plant 4,500 evergreen and deciduous trees, 11,500 shrubs and 45,000 perennials and grasses. While these plants are beautiful and visually pleasing, they serve a very important purpose: they act as bio filters for storm water runoff, they reduce greenhouse gases and they provide habitats for wild life.

E-Landscape also reforested 7 acres for mitigation, actions taken to protect and reduce the impact that disasters will have on the built environment. We’ve installed over 5,500 square feet of permeable pavement systems, which help to reduce storm water pollutants and erosion. We also planted over 20 bio retention facilities that will help to remove pollutants from storm water runoff.

We are thrilled that we were able to accomplish so much this last year, but what excites us most is that is was all done within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed!
