Problems solved by the conservation landscape designer: Eliminate lawn from front yard (and pushing the mower up a steep hill). Complement midcentury modern renovation interior with updated landscape. Infiltrate and capture rain runoff from public street that once headed straight for the front yard. In short, how to be Thoroughly Modern in conserving soils, landscape, home value, and people. Thanks for landscape architecture assistance with infiltration details and pervious paver design to Jessica Primm RLA.
