Specializing in innovative and beautiful solutions for storm water to protect Lake Tahoe
Rain gardens and other creative designs can look great and blend well, while satisfying all TRPA requirements.
Best Management Practices, or BMPs, are very unique to South Lake Tahoe. They help to minimize soil erosion and capture run-off before it enters our watersheds, which helps improve water quality and protect the clarity of Lake Tahoe. BMPs also create defensible space around your home, protecting your property from the threat of catastrophic wildfire.
A rain garden is a simple and effective BMP
A simple shallow depression filled with rocks and just enough soil to allow for deep-rooted native plants and grasses to thrive. A rain garden can reduce run-off by as much as 30%! They are easy to maintain and look great.
