Getting Ready for Water…….
The Raingarden Conveyance Channel is being lined with river rocks. The water from the roof will be piped to this lined channel, then will travel to the raingarden basin. The conveyance channel is steeply pitched away from the building to encourage the water to travel away from the building. The Channel is also lined with a geotextile fabric to reduce the ability of water to percolate into the soil and gravel along the building foundation. The river rock lining holds the fabric and looks nice.
Getting Ready for Plants…….
Final grading was performed by raking the planting soil and sculpting it to the final grades. The planting areas were marked with inverted spray paint. Native plant plugs will be installed by volunteers. Pictures of the site planted are coming soon….
