LID and Rain Garden Basics: The ‘What’ and ‘Why’
Friday, November 3, 2023 | 10:00 am – 12:00 pm CDT

  • LID (low impact development) – aka rainscaping – is about capturing rain where it falls, holding it, and soaking it in
  • There isn’t one ‘big lever’ to deal with today’s more severe rain events
  • Methods of capturing and infiltrating runoff: infiltration trenches to bioswales
  • Dealing with raindrops where they fall is key to reducing flooding and taking stress off municipal infrastructure
  • Getting buy-in from the public

How to Build Rain Gardens: Lessons from an Expert

Friday, November 10, 2023 | 10:00 am – 12:00 pm CST

  • Knowledge on LID (low impact development) is growing and evolving quickly; e.g. should an engineered medium be used, or should we work with existing soils
  • Sizing calculations and infiltration
  • Tests, ‘rules’ of where to put these features and on what time frame they should work
  • Potential and subtle mistakes to be made: how to identify and avoid them?
  • Construction details

Choosing Plants and Specifics of Planting

Friday, November 17, 2023 | 10:00 am – 12:00 pm CST

  • LID (low impact development) can/should beautify neighborhoods and enhance biodiversity
  • It should be effective and beautiful and plants are a big part of that
  • The potential beauty of rain gardens determines whether the public embraces them or not and society needs them
  • A major focus is aesthetics
  • Planting/mulching are the final steps
  • How to do it properly involves tiny details
