Rain garden designs for the landscape industry and citizens that are easily accessible, high quality, sustainable and maintainable.
This site has been developed to display a series of rain garden, or bioretention, design templates that can be used by landscape architects, landscape contractors, and garden clubs throughout the Chesapeake Bay. These designs will promote the use of rain gardens and Bayscapes by providing a set of easily accessible high quality sustainable and maintainable designs for the landscape industry and citizens.
Designs are included for: Sun Piedmont; Shade Piedmont; Sun Mountains; Shade Mountains; Sun Coastal Plain and Shade Coastal Plain. The templates are for direct use for a residence and as a point of inspiration from which a more custom tailored solution may be developed. For each template, there is an associated plant list that fits various conditions of growing zone and exposure. (2008) By the Low Impact Design Center.
