Rainwater Harvesting at Boerner Botanical Garden

Ed Beaulieu of Aquascape, Inc. walks us thru his latest green project near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This environmentally-friendly project consists of a rainwater harvesting system and a permeable paver patio which is designed to capture the rain water from the roof and the parking lot of the facility. Boerner Botanical Gardens can then utilize the rain water for irrigation on their property; as well as provide habitat for wildlife and protection of the downstream watershed by controlling erosion.
