Since 2001, we have had the privilege of restoring and stewarding portions of the Harbor Springs development in Aurora, IL. The basin is adjacent to an active park and is bordered by a popular walking path and it acts as a stormwater management solution for the surrounding homes.
Pizzo & Associates, Ltd. is responsible for managing the invasive species through hand-pulling, hand-wicking, selective cutting and prescribed fires. The density of the wildflowers and grasses aids greatly in keeping the weeds in check.
The shoreline plantings allow residents to easily connect with nature, especially along the walking and biking path. With the native plantings, visitors now commonly see bees, butterflies, dragonflies, birds, turtles, frogs and more.
