Metro Blooms Design+ Build staff have expertise in sustainable landscapes and habitat restoration with an emphasis on stormwater management, native vegetation and invasive vegetation management. We provide services to keep up these resilient landscapes, and to educate those working in this field about best practices in sustainable landscape maintenance. If you are interested in learning how to maintain your own rain garden or planting, we offer maintenance consultations.
The first step for maintenance projects is a consultation.

Metro Blooms maintains, inspects and provides reporting for raingardens, bioswales, stormwater planters, permeable pavers, and underground infiltration chambers. We work closely with local municipalities and watershed districts to make sure that our work meets their requirements. Our crews use sustainable landscape management practices and prioritize seasonal non-chemical methods. These include an understanding of the spread and propagation of invasives to employ best practice (most effective and timely) management strategies, including hand-pulling, digging, torching, smothering, solarizing, mowing, and spraying weeds with organic herbicides. Our crews use only battery-operated landscape equipment.
Our services include: spring clean-up, pruning, deadheading, weed removal and management, maintenance of pre-treatment structures, raingardens, vegetated swales, permeable pavement, debris removal, underdrain assessment and inspection, documentation and reporting on Stormwater BMP function.
Metro Blooms emphasizes education and training for our crews. They participate in our sustainable landcare training program.
Sometimes we can offer maintenance services outside the scope of institutional or commercial properties, such as residential landscapes. Availability depends on our crew’s schedule. Just ask. Another option for residential properties: We offer maintenance consultations to teach you how to maintain your yard. Check our consultations page.
