Sustainable Stormwater Management

We specialize in Permeable Hardscapes and Rain Gardens Installations. In any urban watershed, one of the most important responsibilities is being a great steward of our rainwater as it reenters the watershed. As more building occurs, we have a responsibility to maximize the permeability of the remaining ground. Rain Gardens, Drywells, Permeable Patios/Walkways are some of our favorite strategies for maximizing the permeability of our surfaces. Our Conservation Specialists are certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professionals (CBLP) to ensure Best Management Practices (BMPs) are followed, and our Hardscape Specialists have completed specialty training the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute (ICPI) and are Permeable Interlocking Concrete Paver (PICP) Specialist.

Service FAQ's

Absolutely! We want to ensure that your investment provides the absolute best results for the longevity of time. We can set up a maintenance contract to service your landscaping weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly based off of your wants and needs.
We are based in Alexandria, VA, and we focus on serving clients within 10 miles of our headquarters, which includes parts of DC, Southern Fairfax County and South Arlington County. For maintenance projects, this radius is 5 miles.

With living in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas, we all know that space is limited. But your garden doesn’t have to be. With any space, no matter how big or small, we’re able to add greenery based off of your available space. No space? No problem!
We do our best to not work on your lawn and landscape on the weekends, but sometimes we will have to visit your property on a Saturday, based on weather or scheduling. We try to allow you to enjoy your lawn as much as possible on the weekends, also we like to hang out with our family and friends on the weekends ourselves!
Any lawn can benefit from aeration. However, areas of high traffic that look worn, yards that don’t green up after fertilizing or brown easily in high heat conditions, yards with poor drainage that have standing water after it rains, and homes built on poor subsoil with clay are all excellent reasons to aerate your lawn.
The best time of day to water your lawn is in the early morning. Moisture is able to reach the roots, while the leaf surfaces are able to become dry.
No, we will prepare your beds as part of your service. We will hand pull your weeds prior to your mulch installation. In addition we will remove leaves and other loose debris as necessary.
We reccomend installing mulch at least once per year.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your property’s condition, please call TLC Design and we will schedule a free Site Visit to meet you on your property, if needed, to address your concerns.
We work diligently to complete all services on your scheduled day. If we do have a rain event that leads to rescheduling, you will be notified via email and/or text.
