GUARD neighborhoods from flooding & GUARD streams from storm water runoff pollution.
Introducing StormGUARDen, the first storm water management solution that combines a rain garden and rain barrel into one eco-friendly system. It has the capacity to grow beautiful gardens, prevent runoff AND helps protect our waterways from storm water pollution. StormGUARDen is a great sustainable alternative to traditional downspout systems.
How StormGUARDen works:
1. Rooftop rainwater flows through a downspout into the stone filled trough.
2. The water then spills over into planting containers where our special soil media, filters and plants absorb contaminants.
3. Excess water from the planting containers overflows to the bottom water reservoir where water is released into the ground.
Why StormGUARDen makes sense:
Capacity to store 6.5 rain barrels of water
Removes bacteria & other rooftop pollutants
Grow a variety of plants, fruits & veggies
Captures & reduces flows from a 3″ rain event
