This project, like many residential projects, began with the goal of eliminating the constant flooding of a ground floor residential unit. The original design used stacked 6 x 6 timbers, backfilled with soil and compost to regrade the site, prevent flooding and serve as a conservation landscape. However, in addition to addressing stormwater runoff, the project team noticed that the backfilled landscape area was receiving condensation from the buildings air conditioning units. So, they worked with what was given to them and created a small, shallow pond constructed with amended soil, layers of rocks, with a berm of rocks placed around the pond to slow the infiltration of water. Plants for the site were chosen because of their had high pollinator value and durability. Rotting wood was also added to provide nooks and crannies to serve as a habitat for insects. The project relied heavily on volunteers, and provided a much needed stormwater solution for only $875.
