Social Sustainability

The challenge and goal of this project was to contain water on site and to prevent runoff into storm drains and the nearby Diamond Lake. By implementing different water management practices, we achieved our goal and created an educational opportunity for the neighborhood. Winner 2017 MNLA Award.

This yard renovation realizes sustainable practices while creating an oasis in the city.

Visible raingardens are both functional and educational.

The permeable driveway filters water runoff before reaching the lake.

Captured rainwater is repurposed as an attractive water feature.
