Rain Gardens

The rain gardens are being planted. The rain water run-off not contained by the rain harvest system will be collected in these areas that are designed to irrigate specific plants; all impermeable surfaces in the landscape drain to the rain gardens.  Along with the rain harvest system and permanent erosion control features, the rain gardens contribute to a plan that allows complete surface water management for the site.  The LEED program recognizes this by awarding 4 LEED points for Surface Water Management.
