DeFranco Landscaping-Sustainable & Green Infrastructure Article-The Lake George Mirror

DeFranco Landscaping has been featured in numerous publications over the last two years. We were very pleased and honored to have the chance to discuss our family business with the The Lake George Mirror‘s Buzz Lamb.

Attached is The Lake George Mirror on sustainable landscaping : http://www.lakegeorgemirrormagazine.com/tag/dave-defranco/ DeFranco likes to try to save as many resources on each property using many of the principals of low-impact development.

 Anthony DeFranco, PE, CNLP also represented DeFranco Landscaping at the Lake George Association’s 1st Annual Lake-Friendly Living Showcase during the summer. They displayed permeable paver blocks from Techo-Bloc along with highlighting the many types of lake-friendly projects that they specialize in around the Lake George basin.  They also use native plants in most of their landscape designs and received the Frank Leonbruno Lake Stewardship Award from the Lake George Watershed Coalition in 2010 for use of Native Plants. The projects include:

  1.  Stormwater Management (rain gardens)
  2.  Erosion Control/Hydroseeding
  3.  Permeable Pavers
  4.  Shoreline Buffers / Native Plantings

Give DeFranco Landscaping a call if you have a future project that you need completed around the lake. We would be happy to help with our knowledgeable staff and experiences of working around Lake George.

Times Union-Going Green Article-Published March 27, 2011

DeFranco Landscaping has completed numerous shoreline buffers, rain gardens (stormwater management) and native plantings around the Lake George shoreline. They have experience with shoreline accesses created out of native stone slab steps or timber construction.  Shoreline buffers with native plants allow stormwater runoff to be filtered one last time before it eventually enters Lake George. Native plants have many advantages. They require less watering, less fertilizer. This past year, the Town of Lake George and Queensbury passed laws that no phosphate fertilizers are to be applied along the shorelines of Lake George. It will also become a NYS law in 2012.
