By promoting habitat diversity and minimizing our chemical inputs, Refugia aims to support biodiverse communities that retain the ecological complexities of the natural world. We recommend taking a look at Candeias' snapshot of the dynamic relationships between grasshoppers, spiders, and goldenrod (Solidago spp.), and leaving spiders be when you spot them in your landscape!
We are excited to announce that this week, Refugia Design received the 'Lower Merion Go for the Green' Award for Site Greening at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. The Go for the Green Award is sponsored by the Lower Merion Environmental Advisory Council, and "recognizes our Township's finest residents, businesses, organizations, and schools...for their work to improve and protect our environment."
As April begins and it finally feels like Spring, the impact of stormwater is becoming clearly present throughout landscapes. By making a few changes that slow down water flowing across a landscape, land owners can make significant improvements in surrounding ecosystems, and reduce their home’s contribution to the pollution of our watersheds.
