green roofs

Green roofing offers a proven, cost-effective and attractive method to reduce storm-water runoff that can be applied from row-house to warehouse. There is no job too big or too small for dc greenworks! In this section is just a sampling of successful projects we have built.

rain gardens

Rain gardens reduces rain runoff by allowing stormwater to soak into the ground (as opposed to flowing into storm drains and surface waters which causes erosion, water pollution, flooding, and diminished groundwater). Rain gardens can cut down on the amount of pollution reaching creeks and streams by up to 30%.

school projects

dc greenworks is partnering with schools throughout the DC metro area in an effort to build upon the many greening projects that are being implemented throughout the region. In this section you can view the wonderful projects that we are working on in collaboration with these fine schools.

urban agriculture

Around 15 percent of the world's food is now grown in urban areas. City and suburban agriculture takes the form of backyard, roof-top and balcony gardening, community gardening in vacant lots and parks, roadside urban fringe agriculture and livestock grazing in open space. In this section you will see how dc greenworks works with the community to build successful urban gardens.
