Water is present on or flows through most gardens and landscapes.
It is essential to understand the presence and the flow of water through a site from the outset of a project, so that its impact can be both mitigated and designed intelligently into a scheme.
This webinar will highlight strategies for approaching a site, through to design solutions that embrace and anticipate the erratic presence or lack of water in a garden.
The focus will be on construction and detailing rather than plant species.
- rain/ surface water drainage
- rainwater gardens, swales and culverts
- site control for surface water
- reed beds
- soakaways and attenuation tanks
- ground water
The basics of specifying and detailing drainage in typical garden constructions:
- slot drains: types and where to use them
- soak-aways: designs and when they are suitable
- lawn drainage
- patios: falls and perimeter drainage
- permeable: surfaces and sub-bases
- steps: falls and drainage
- falls: in general, for paving and hard landscaping
- retaining walls and rear drainage
target audience: anyone who undertakes construction detailing as part of their landscape/ garden design output.
