WESTERN SUBURBS PROJECT – rain barrels, vegetable garden, erosion control, wildlife habitat, screening
A traditional style family-friendly landscape can do so much good. This one infiltrates water at all the downspouts, adds curb appeal, conserves water with multiple rain barrels, provides wildlife habitat with native plants, bird feeders, plus a veggie garden. Add a soothing fountain near the front porch. window, and say ahhh! Homeowners also maintain their lawn organically. Oh yeah!
