SUSTAINABILITY

 The N.S. Johnson Company is LEED Accredited and certified by the Greywater Action Network. 

We at the NS Johnson Company believe sustainable solutions such as rainwater catchment and greywater recycling serve as important strategies to reduce maintenance and life-cycle costs  of our clients' homes and businesses.

 

Images below show some typical and exceptional examples of systems, along with examples of some of our own installations.

(Shown here before applying final layer of mulch.) This N.S. Johnson greywater system distributes water from water features once that water discolors with algae. The water is pumped to the landscape through pipes embedded in mulch basins and trenches, allowing the water to come into immediate contact with plant roots while preventing unpleasant odors.
