Drainage l.jpg
Drainage

  • A completely impervious parking lot relies on drainage structures, i.e. piping, retention ponds

  • Allowing for some impervious parking or landscaped drainage swales can reduce the size of built drainage needed



Why landscape parking lots l.jpg
Why Landscape Parking Lots?

  • Helps alleviate the amount of heat a parking lot gives off “heat islands”

  • Can go hand in hand with drainage, the more pervious areas= the less drainage structures that may need to be built

  • Visual buffers

  • Traffic calming

    • traffic has designated areas to access parking lot

    • More easily allows for sidewalks and pedestrian access
