Stormwater Management Facility Maintenance and Replanting at Fedex by Arbor Lodge – Phase One

This client reached out to us after frustrating experiences with other landscaping companies who don’t know the proper ways to maintain native bioswales / stormwater management facilities. They used aggressive landscaping methods that end up chopping off perfectly healthy native grasses in the basins, which eventually resulted in them dying in mass. Our expertise allowed us to identify native plants from invasive plants. We meticulously pulled out the invasive plants and restored the native ones. We also removed all the dead native plants and replanted 8000+ new ones.

We also laid out future plans to introduce other species of native plants so that this ecosystem will be more diverse and resilient, requiring less maintenance in the future. In the long run, it will save a lot more money for the client. On top of that, they will more likely to exceed the environmental standards and regulations that commercial businesses like this have to abide by. Feed two birds with one seed!
