Rain Gardens

Introduction

A rain garden is used as a Low Impact Development (LID) stormwater management solution which promotes evapotranspiration. Rain gardens are designed to withstand the extremes of moisture and concentration of nutrients that are found in stormwater runoff. On the surface, it is an attractive garden that may support habitat for birds and other species. Below the surface, a number of processes are occurring to mimic the hydrological action of a healthy forest.

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
