Rainwater garden in Northampton

Portfolio Categories: Grading, Path, and Rainwater Garden.

The owners of this Northampton property were experiencing a significant water erosion problem and water in their basement.

Paradise City Landscape Design proposed a solution which combines a swale with a beautiful walk through a shaded perennial garden.

The swale collects the rainwater runoff from the roof, guiding the water down the slope to the back yard. Goshen stepping stones, embedded in the swale’s crushed stone, create a fun path for the owners’ children, hopping and playing.
