Stormwater Strategies for Property Owners

For the La Salle rain gardens, we saved money and carbon emissions by making rain garden mix soils on site.  We combined the native, weathered schist with glass fines and compost.  The glass fines were obtained from a Philadelphia glass recycling center and the compost was obtained from the Fairmount Park organics recycling center.

In January, we were notified that we were the recipients of a grant from the GSI Partners initiative of the Sustainable Business Network to monitor the performance of two of the rain gardens at La Salle.
