"For decades, starting with artist Buster Simpson, I've been inspired by how designers work with stormwater, making it a visible design element while improving water quality. I aspire to do the same with every project."

The most exciting thing about practicing landscape architecture today is our profession's renewed attention to water. We used to do it well. Then we seemed to forget. Cheryl Corson Design employs every appropriate stormwater BMP (Best Management Practice) possible to keep water on site, and use it to nourish plants and the soil, while recharging and cleaning ground water below. These images show a range of projects using various techniques employed in residential, commercial, and institutional projects.
