I am an active member of Grow Native! which provides the public with growing guides and services for your considerations and review. They also list members, growers, and materials for use in our state of Missouri. As a Landscape Architect, I recognize the need for their expertise in our community and offer my service to you.
Because of new government changes in how water run-off is being handled, both residential and commercial sites are being required to come into compliance with a new set of standards and regulations. Several links have been provided to help you access this information. Owners, developers and trustees should review regulations that may apply before starting new projects or renovating an existing site. Metropolitan Sewer District, Shaw Nature Reserve, and Grow Native have joined to develop "Green Storm-Water Solutions" and "Green Structures BMP's" reference materials to help guide you during this transition.
