Mary-Louise and Alain: Landscape Design

2015 Residential Stormwater Award Winner (Cambridge)

Here’s the story of one of the 2015 Celebrating Community Action award recipients. Learn about all nine recipients.

Mary-Louise and Alain had some serious stormwater problems at their home. During heavy rains and spring thaws water flowed from a high point in their back yard, over tight clay soils and into their basement. They worked with Kerr and Kerr Landscaping to develop a comprehensive solution to keep their basement dry. They removed over 100 cubic yards of soil to flatten the property, installed french drains, an infiltration gallery, several rain gardens and a permeable paving pathway and patio.

“The work has solved our water problems and turned our backyard into an oasis,” explains Mary-Louise.
