#Stormwater capture in action 💦 Last week's #rain filled up the #bioswale under development near the #OakWoodland. Built to capture and treat stormwater, the next phase includes adding native plants. This will both filter the sediments in the water and add to the beauty of the garden 🌱 #WaterWednesday
