The Rain Garden at St. George's School

The Rain Garden associated with the Hill Library Addition and Renovation project at St. George's School is underway.
Located downhill from the building's west side, it is a key player in the project's stormwater management strategy.  The rain garden is a collaboration between PDR, civil engineer Vanasse Hangen Brustlin (VHB), Shawmut Design & Construction, and St. George's own resident plant whiz Lori Silvia.  Lori has carefully selected all the species and is doing the planting herself.

The project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
