Rain Garden Workshop

As our cities become denser, gardens on larger blocks give way to multi-storey developments and surfaces change from permeable gardens to paving, concrete and asphalt. Rain has a more difficult time getting into the soil, where it naturally belongs, and instead comes rushing into gutters and streets, now more prone to flooding as impermeable surfaces increase.

Rain gardens help our stormwater systems deal with the two problems of quality and quantity – by slowing down and absorbing stormwater into your site and by filtering the water if it leaves the site.

We look at various types of rain gardens and build one together.
