About rain gardens and green screens

Rain gardens

One way we can help you deliver environmental benefits from your outdoor space or playground is through the improved management of rainwater. 

As a result of global warming, flooding has become more frequent in recent years due to heavier and more intense periods of rainfall. As well as causing local flooding it can also cause overloading of sewage works, resulting in the release of untreated sewage and the flooding of areas further downstream of rivers.

The construction of rain gardens helps increase the area for water to collect and infiltrate naturally into the ground. It slows the movement of water into the drainage system and reduces water runoff which can cause localised flooding in low areas.

The creation of rain gardens also has the added benefit of ‘greening up’ grey sterile tarmac areas and improving the ecological value of the area.

For smaller areas we have developed special raised storage planters to intercept water from roofs and down pipes, store it short term, then release it slowly back into the mains drainage system long after the rain has subsided.

Canopies which provide people with protection from sun and rain can also be used to collect rain and re-direct the water into the rain gardens or planters.

Another popular environmental upgrade for schools and site near roads is the installation of greenscreens. These are natural growing plant barriers which reduce toxic gases and airborne pollutants, as well as helping to reducing sound levels and providing an attractive visual screen.

When installed in conjunction with automatic irrigation systems, these can quickly establish to provide an effective barrier for school playgrounds and outdoor spaces near roads.

Concerned about the cost?

Any company that is considering investing in their site has to balance cost against benefits – if the cost is too high, then the project cannot proceed. While there are obviously costs connected to having a new garden installed, did you know that funding may be available to you? Many water companies are keen to support the installation of rain gardens as they have a vested interested in managing the impact of rainfall. To this end, funding is often available via these companies. Talk to our team to learn more.
