Greywater Garden in Owings Mills

One of our regular clients had a greywater garden installed, and requested that we design and plant it!  This type of garden recycles greywater from homes to reduce the amount that ends up in sewers. Greywater is gently used water that comes from various household plumbing such as dishwashers, sinks, showers, and washing machines.  Instead of being dumped into the sewers, it can be rerouted to help water gardens!  A greywater system is a great way to reduce wasted water.
