LP047: Ornamental Ways to Handle Rainwater
Urban development has resulted in large areas of impermeable surfaces, leading to many challenges. Municipalities and conservation authorities are offering grant programs for rain handling from permeable pavers to rain gardens, as well as educating the public about rain water issues and how to handle them. Now is the time to get ahead of the curve. Learn techniques to slow down rainwater. Sean will show you how to design and build a rain garden including placement, construction sizing challenges and plant choices. Making it beautiful will be a major focus and an unusual palette of amazing plants will be addressed in detail.
Consider continuing with a Green Roof or Herbaceous and Woody Plants seminar.
