Built Green is an environmental building program designed to provide home buyers with durable, eco-friendly homes that are both cost effective to own and to operate. Every home must meet certain standards to be qualified as a Built Green home. These homes can offer improved landscape design by minimizing lawn areas, landscaping with native plants, mulching, and creating areas, like rain gardens, for excess water to collect and filter into the ground naturally. Additonallu, by using alterative foundations, like pin foundations, means a smaller area to be excavated and graded, saving more surrounding vegetation and trees.
