open cell with vegetation allow water to pass through as much as 40 percent of the surface area
When you have decided on a system and are ready to install it, look to redirect as much of the water as possible from your patio, roofline and downspouts to the new permeable area, so you’re capturing as much runoff water as possible.
Systems like this open cell with vegetation allow water to pass through as much as 40 percent of the surface area. Most jurisdictions enforce land-use codes that limit the buildable area on a lot. Many also include a maximum amount of impervious surface area allowed on a parcel. The driveway is a

What I really love about this space is the grove of trees set in masses of perennials that leads guests off into the garden. The tighter and more off-center the trees, the better.
Cipped seal drive with large garden planters.

Cultural expectations are powerful, and some folks will never be comfortable in these wild gardens, no matter how stylized. I grew
