Storm Water Solutions to Drought
I’ll bet you never think about storm water solutions when walking in your neighorhood. You may have noticed your local landscape seems stressed out by drought. A walk can tell you a lot about the outside factors affecting your property. Working with permaculture is one of the most effective ways to restore soil, increase plant health, add shade, and attract beneficial wildlife. You can also lower your water and power bills by choosing permaculture instead of traditional landscaping. But did you know permaculture reverses drought?

Most families don’t realize that they can lower their water bills with a few simple techniques.
