Urban Ecology… …how plants, animals & people interact in an urban setting…adapting our behavior to improve those interactions and lessen our impact on the environment.
This rain garden takes almost all the water from the entire roof, keeping it from going down the drain , so to speak. The original bed was planted with topiary shrubs and bushes which had to be removed. Several residents worked with me to dig the bed out, mix in sand and manure. I was able to use exactly all of the rocks I moved from my old house to form a sort of stream bed, taking the water down to a second level. The rain chain is in mission style like the house and is not only beautiful, but the sound as water flows down it is mesmerizing. Next spring it will be alive with native wildflowers , attracting butterflies and birds to the yard and I shouldn't have to do much watering. (Ken R.)
