About Avesi

Hello and welcome,

AVESI was created to empower people to use their landscapes to create a better world. A world where less is wasted, biodiversity is revered, and natural resources are cherished.
AVESI’s custom landscape solutions are designed using the principles of rainscaping –
which focuses on rainwater management, ecology, and sustainability.

We have three guiding principles for all projects:

I am proud to help people discover how to get the most out of their properties by
applying an ecological approach to their landscapes. Water is the most valuable
resource that we have, and it’s our responsibility to manage it wisely.

If you’d like to discover how rainscaping can work for your property I’ve put my calendar on the contact page so we can connect and get started.

Best, Michael

The Modern Rain Garden


The Modern Rain Garden is an in-depth account of my personal experience with rain gardens over the past decade. Rain garden theory and methodology can differ greatly from one resource to the next, leaving readers confused over which one to believe, often leading to decision paralysis and a lack of action.

This honest and relatable account will empower readers to think critically so they can make their design and construction decisions with confidence.
My mission with The Modern Rain Garden is to demystify the concept and help readers take ownership over their rain gardens.

I have personally designed and built dozens of rain gardens through my venture AVESI Stormwater and Landscape Solutions using the method I have coined ‘Scrape, Shape, and Plant’.

AVESI landscapes manage precious rainwater efficiently and sustainably by using a combination of traditional landscaping methods and modern rain scaping principles to:

  1. Create beautiful, functional, and sustainable landscapes
  2. Manage rain where it falls
  3. Help keep properties safe from water damage
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Modern Rain Garden.
