Premium Aquascapes
New Milford

This is a low maintenance eco friendly yard. The main feature is a Rain Water Harvesting system that captures and filters 800 gallons of runoff from the roof. The feature overflows into a rain garden planting area that provides additional filtration prior to excess water running into the public storm water system. In addition with a booster pump we are able to utilze drip irrigation to water the landscape plantings during times of little or no rain. On the left side of the house we have installed a traditional rain garden by directing the downspout into a landscapes area as well. This yard is also certified by the National Wildlife Foundation as a wildlife habitat. Premium Aquascapes is owned by Pieter van Westervelt, a nationally recognized Certified Aquascape Contractor with over 25 years experience in designing, creating and maintaining water features.
