Water is liquid gold. Water is everywhere. It’s necessary for our survival and the survival of life. Water is very powerful – both in its chemical make-up and its key to life, but also in its sheer force. Put water and rock together and water wins, just think about how the magnificent Grand Canyon was created through erosion. Water can also be violent as you think about how sand is created from the waves upon the beach.
Your home is also subject to water, not only in and around the structure yet also around your home on the land your home sits on. Stormwater and the erosion it can cause are present around your home too. Planning for that water as much as possible through features and landscape can help both your home and the land it sits on. There are many different ways to think about water and how it affects our homes and land. Join us in this episode to explore managing and using stormwater and landscape around your home with ideas from rain barrels to native flowers.
