The healthy homes of the future will be living homes with a biophilic presence. They'll be energy-smart with automated lighting systems, clean air and water filtration and water-wise sustainable landscaping.
Plants clean water and air. We're in a symbiotic tie with nature. We preserve wetlands because they are filtration systems, like kidneys, keeping the planet healthy. Plants also help in the built environment, particularly with HVAC.
Stormwater runoff is a key issue impacting our watersheds. Green tools such as rain barrels and rain gardens help homeowners manage stormwater and contribute to the health of our local rivers and streams.
