This project, located in NE DC, involved conversion of a small impervious patio to pervious pavers and addition of two 132 gallon rain barrels. This project presents a low-maintenance residential retrofit alternative to a rain garden design. Many Bay residents are not gardeners and may be adverse to additional landscaping burdens (perceived or not) generated by a rain garden. This project demonstrates how stormwater can still be managed in a small, low-maintenance, and functional residential space. Further, this project had a strong community outreach component. A garden party was hosted at the site to showcase the project, to spread awareness about stormwater, and to help establish confidence for the use of LID projects on other residential homes.
