Apiary Studio

Apiary Studio was hired by a homeowner frustrated with chronic flooding in her back yard following every rain storm. We designed and installed a system to collect all the rain water runoff from .25 acres of the roof and convey it via subsurface perforated piping into a rain garden installed in the corner of the back yard. Utilizing native plant material that we propagated at Apiary Nursery from locally sourced seed, we filled the garden with a diverse array of perennial plantings. Martha Keen contributed substantially to the plant propagation and installation of this project.
