Rain Garden Designs

Here are the 2 Rain Garden Designs for the Hazel Valley Community Garden.

The western rain garden is long and narrow, capturing run-off from the road before it enters the storm-drain that empties directly into Puget Sound.
The southern rain garden captures rain water from the adjacent roof, diverting it from entry directly onto the street and the Puget Sound storm-drain.
Both function as important mitigation features, helping to keep Puget Sound healthy and free of street pollutants from leaky automobile engines and transmissions.
The rain gardens capture and slowly filter street an roof run-off, allowing the water to sink into the ground, recharging the aquifer beneath.
