The Construction of a Rain Garden in a Swale in Downers Grove


Missing pic Missing pic

Here is the planted drainage swale ain early March 2011. The left photo showing the garden looking south and the right shows the area looking north. Because of the large amount of water carried in the swale the plants are unable to absorb even a noticeable portion of it.

However, doesn't a planted swale look much better than a barren drainage ditch? That's important too!
