New homeowners are flocking to the mountains of Western North Carolina, looking to buy property above, on or below slopes. If you’ve arrived here from another part of the country, as many do, you may not understand the hazards of untamed stormwater runoff. With the assistance of Ambrose Landscapes, residential stormwater management projects maintain or even increase the value of your property.

Urban development in WNC increases stormwater runoff, creating a need for sustainable stormwater solutions. A professional residential stormwater management team can preserve your investment and the integrity of your land.

When permeable land — such as wooded areas and fields — are replaced with housing developments, driveways, roads and parking lots, the water that previously soaked into the ground instead now runs off, leading to:

  • Property damage
  • Loss of aesthetics
  • An ecological impact that’s often difficult to measure
