Sustainability and Southern Botanical
With an ever increasing awareness of environmental sustainability in our everyday operations, Southern Botanical is constantly learning, researching and implementing better, more efficient and more practical landscaping techniques. We are committed to helping our clients establish and maintain beautiful, yet sustainable grounds and gardens. By using the very cutting edge in landscaping and irrigation technology, we are not only helping clients be eco-friendly and water-wise, we are revolutionizing the industry. From high-tech irrigation controllers to drought resistant plant materials, we endorse and encourage landscapes that use resources appropriately and meet our clients’ vision for beauty.
Advanced Water Management
From water-saving drip and bubbler systems, to rainwater collection systems, Southern Botanical seeks to find the best ways to help clients implement water and money saving options for their landscaping. New, high efficiency spray heads retrofitted to existing zones can partner with more resilient plantings for water use reductions of up to 60%. All Southern Botanical clients enjoy cutting-edge irrigation controllers that are controlled online or by smart phone to allow programming to be adapted to current weather conditions. We also offer cisterns, on-site water wells and other forward thinking options. Some of these techniques will pay for themselves over time, while also being environmentally friendly.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized mark of excellence providing home and building owners and property managers with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
With multiple LEED certified commercial projects as part of our portfolio, Southern Botanical is leading by example in promoting real world applications of high sustainability standards. LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
