    TRD Designs, First Westchester-Based Landscape Designer Trained to Install Revolutionary Rainwater Harvesting System Environmentally Conscious Homeowners, Condo Associations & Commercial Buildings can Capture, Filter and Recycling Rainwater for a Variety of Uses with the RainXchange™ System Katonah, NY – April 14, 2009. TRD Designs, (www.trddesign.com) a Katonah-based landscape design and build firm is pleased to announce that it has become the first Westchester-based landscape company trained in the installation of the RainXchange™ system. TRD Designs serves both Westchester County and Fairfield County. Created by Aquascape, Inc., the cutting-edge RainXchange™ System allows users to capture, filter, and re-use rainwater. RainXchange is a revolutionary Green technology that combines a re-circulating, decorative water feature with sub-surface rainwater harvesting collection system. By capturing rainwater to operate the water feature, it creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources; therefore, creating an environmentally conscious habitat for humans and wildlife. Collection of the stored water to irrigate plantings, washing your cars, patio or deck makes dollars and “sense.” “This country is moving toward becoming more environmentally responsible, or Green, and the RainXchange system is a tremendous step in that direction,” said Tom Dieck, Owner of TRD Designs. “In addition to recycling rainwater, our greatest natural resource, the system adds beauty to a property and therapeutic sounds of nature via water features. More importantly, capturing excessive amounts of rainwater reduces flooding and runoff which can be a serious problem. The RainXchange ™ System can earn up to 12 LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credit points, making it an ideal residential and commercial application for managing storm water in green building projects. Many of my clients in Westchester and Fairfield Counties are environmentally conscious and looking for new ways to become Green,” Dieck added. RainXchange not only benefits residential homes, but can benefit commercial properties, like office buildings, hotels, golf courses and condo associations.” In 2005 and 2007, TRD Designs coordinated the landscape effort and appeared on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. In 2007 season finale, the company helped transform the landscape of the Clearpool Education Center, a 100-year old non-profit camp that provides underprivileged children in the tri-state area with a fun and educational camp experience.
