Square Foot Stormwater Garden Modules
Originally designed to cover the chain link fence at the Gowanus Canal Conservancy Salt Lot, the Square Foot Stormwater Gardens are a modular green infrastructure solution for reducing combined overflow in the Gowanus Canal. The modules can hang vertically or rest horizontally, and can tolerate full sun or part shade. The frames are made from locally available materials and planted with home-made planting medium and sedum. These modules must live outside in order to perform their role as stormwater sponge.
