Sustainable Landscaping

Concord is committed to taking action on climate by reducing our GHG emissions and improving our resilience to climate impacts.

Sustainable landscaping will reduce Concord's vulnerability to extreme weather events and drought by reducing stress on our water supply, enhancing groundwater recharge, filtering out contaminants, mitigating flash flooding, improving health of local waterways, and increasing carbon local sequestration potential.
