Project Showcase in Wyomissing, PA

https://cepontzsons.com/project-showcase-2/
This backyard renovation is any homeowners dream, complete with the whole package, water features, landscaping, and hardscaping. The Landscaping includes a boulder wall along the low corner of the house, two patios using PA Thermal Flagstone on the upper patio and PA irregular flagstone on the lower patio. At the back of the home a set of steps were installed to exit the home and a combination of ramp and step at the second exit door. All downspouts were buried and directed to the back yard on the outside edge of the plant beds. A large scale water feature was installed and includes LED lighting, pond plants and fish. The water feature is a series of 8′ x11′ upper pond, 18′ long varying width stream/Channel for fish to swim between the two ponds, 11’x16′ lower pond and zero edge spill way falling through the lower patio into a disappearing basin. The water feature will begin with a wetland bog filter at the upper end of the first pond. The water feature has an Iongen 2 Algae Control System to make the care of the feature as maintenance free as possible. An outdoor kitchen island designed to hold the “Big Green Egg” and a sink built into the island is installed just off the patio area. Lastly, we installed plantings and mulched all new plant beds and seeded the disturbed soil in the back yard area.

Rain Gardens – Saving Streams One Yard At A Time

https://cepontzsons.com/rain-gardens-saving-streams-one-yard-at-a-time-2/

By creating a rain garden, you can capture water from your downspouts and yard in a way that creates habitat for wildlife — and protects your local streams.
A rain garden is an attractive landscaped area planted with wildflowers and other vegetation (preferably native to the area) that has been designed to collect water that runs off a roof, driveway, or other parts of a property, including area lawns. Rain gardens are intended to fill with water during storms and slowly filter the water into the ground. Rain gardens are an economical way of dealing with rainfall the way nature intended by infiltrating, slowing down, and reducing the volume of runoff that enters a stormwater system. During heavy rains, they can prevent storm sewer overflows that can end up in our rivers and streams.
Rain gardens not only keep rainwater on your property and out of the sewer system, they offer an attractive alternative to manicured lawns, adding beauty and value to a neighborhood. And, they provide important habitat for birds, butterflies, and other beneficial insects.
More information about protecting and managing stormwater with rain gardens is available through StormwaterPA.org: stormwaterpa.org/raingarden.html

Rain Gardens: Saving Streams One Yard at a Time

excerpt from stomwater pa:

Do you like gardening? Do you love seeing birds and butterflies at flight in your yard? Creating a rain garden offers therapuetic exercise, attracts wildlife, and helps keep stormwater runoff from overburdening sewer systems–or entering local streams.
