Modern Rain Garden

The owners of this early twentieth century home were looking for more functional living space in their backyard, and to make the yard more durable for an energetic family dog.  They were also interested in redirecting some of the rainwater from their roof into a rain garden.

We worked together to develop a plan that gave them more living and entertaining space and centered around a rain garden and metal runnel that collected storm water from the roof.  The plants were selected to be durable, but also add color throughout the year.
