NJ Landscape Design Tips: Protecting your Garden from Flood Damage


Naturally, homes around New Jersey have added countermeasures to protect their homes from flood damage. Unfortunately, some people do not have a drainage system robust enough to properly protect their gardens from flooding. Protect the landscape design of your NJ home by following these simple tips:
