Rain garden planters: Designed for Flooding
As a result of climate change, we are seeing more and more flash floods occuring due to extreme rainfall. This is further amplified by the trend for covering gardens with impervious materials instead of rain absorbing lawns, including front gardens paved for driveways and the reduced sized of back gardens in favour of new buildings.
Rain garden planters, or stormwater planters, are a sustainable stormwater management solution with their clever internal drainage system.
They collect rooftop runoff and work like a rain garden
in a planter allowing for sustainable stormwater management.
These planters are particularly useful if you have a significant amount of rain water traveling from the rooftop or other impervious surface directly into a drain causing flooding on your property.
