Step of Green
While developing the creative garden designs for our clients at Wilson WARE Group we have found two things to be true. Good design and good construction are not always hand in hand and often construction and craftsmanship are not either. To alleviate these problems we developed our sister company Step of Green to assist in building and maintaining the gardens we designed or designed by others. Step of Green, handles the two biggest questions our clients have, who can build the garden and who can help me maintain it? We offer a variety of services within Step of Green see below to find out how we can turn your problem into and asset.

Rain Gardens/Bio Swales
A rain garden or Bio swale is basically a planted depression that allows rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas like roofs, driveways, walkways, and compacted lawn areas the opportunity to be absorbed. This reduces rain runoff by allowing storm water o soak into the ground as opposed to flowing into storm drains or surface waterways. These practices can reduce water pollutants form entering creeks and streams by 30%. They are also great solutions to drainage problems that have limited or no positive drainage away from the property. When Step of Green installs a rain garden or bio swale we always treat the initial problem area as an opportunity to make something great. Working with our drainage expertise as well as our horticultural knowledge, we create spaces that were once forgotten and avoided into gardens to be used and enjoyed.
