Design Goals


  • Address massive run-on issues

  • Use site as to test innovative irrigation strategies to grow shade, privacy, and accent plants

  • Create an attractive, welcoming entrance to the property

Strategies

  1. Direct run-on through swale and basin system

  2. Convey (via PVC pop-up emitters) roof-run-off to basins sized to accept 1” rain events

  3. Biogravel surfacing, rock groupings, and custom seed mixes for wildflower germination

  4. Steel edging and compacted DG for formal, but still semi-permeable, path and patio system
