Private Residence | Potomac, MD

Since May, 2010, the State of Maryland is enforcing new requirements for stormwater runoff. These new regulations include emphasis on water infiltration into the ground naturally, rather than being channeled through pipes or into storage ponds. These regulations require changes in how development is planned and rely heavily on experienced landscape architects and environmental planners. Environmental Site Design (ESD), sometimes referred to as Environmentally Sensitive Design, is a specific area of expertise for Norton Land Design, bringing together both creative landscape design skills as well as strong environmental planning experience.
