Lakes Like Less Lawn

A lawn going right down to the water is a simple recipe for a green lake. Native vegetation absorbs runoff and filters out nutrients that cause algae blooms. So it really comes down to what you value more…your lawn or the lake.

Don’t go to the dark side…choose the lake and find out all about the beautiful native plants that can help keep our water clean and clear. The 2017 version of Lakes Like Less Lawn created by Portland Water District and LEA is a great guide to help you pick plants that are appropriate for your property and beneficial to the lake.

Still have questions about plants and permitting?  Give us a call and we can help make sure you are pleased with the results.
