    Water is allowed to enter then exit the raingarden farther down grade…. in a small to medium event most precip will be captured and perc in these areas. It is Florida so larger rain events will be allowed to overflow and enter into the existing culverts at intersections.

  • So does the water go through in the right hand corner of each cell? Or is each cell a separate containment area?

    Here is some pics from the project I described below- this was from 3 months ago and is coming along nicely. Note the re-used granite that we incorporated from existing curbs on the street. The sidewalk is alternating concrete broom finish and shell agreggate wash.

    Greet links, they helped a lot on a recent project. Thanks!
     

  • Thanks for your photos Chris.  Deadrick street looks great!
    Kevin– yes, we are installing planters over storm inlets. 
    Any feedback is appreciated.

  • What is the grade and the largest amount of water you are dealing with? The planter needs to be designed to handle whatever nature throws at you.  You can retrofit the drain like Chris said to become the overflow at the down end of your planter. If you have a lot of slope, check dams can hold the water and pool it to infiltrate fully. Then the…[Read more]

  • Are you talking about installing a planter over a storm inlet, or a storm line? 

  • We are designing stormwater bioretention planters for a downtown.  We want to place a planter where a storm drain currently exists.  Can a planter be designed over a storm drain and be an effective bioretention measure — i.e. slowing down rainwater but not completely infiltrating?  Appreciate any input.

    Hi All!
    I’d like to offer you an irrigation tube, which is to be digged under the plant/grass into soil (20 cm). Tube will ‘sweaten’ the water through porous surface and feed water to root system. Absolutely easy and water saving!!
    Please feel free to contact me for support!

  • John, thanks for sharing.  Do you have any site photos, from these projects, that you’re able to post here?

    If anybody here has done any public work involving raingardens in Florida let me know! Since I have been working for my firm here in Tampa we have completed 4 to 5 significant “raingarden” type projects; one of them being a LAP FDOT streetscape for Tarpon Springs. Public work involving stormwater management in a creative way is far and few…[Read more]

    Has anyone designed a commercial or residential irriation system with HTPE pipe?

  • Hi all,
    I am currently working on a landscape design for a parking lot in an arid area. Which is the best irrigation sytem to use, taking note that the island is 2metres wide?Where can i get more information on irrigation design?

  • Jon Q. asked about construction documents for green street work. After mining Portland’s BES site, i found a lot. Very helpful.

  • Hi All,
    A little Bio. for your consumption. I started irrigation design in 2001 in Arizona. Worked with a L. A. in Arizona, who exclusively went after IRRIG. projects. He did very well, However I wanted to grow to other areas and moved on. Jump to the present, In the last office I worked in (March 2009), My billable hours for Irrigation Design was…[Read more]

  • By the way, it is dumping down rain in Portland right now!

  • Thank you Jason, and everyone else for the welcome into the green streets group. I really am looking forward to discussing the latest thinking with green streets with you all. Going to Kansas City, Missouri for a presentation on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I would like to post some things when I return.
