Garden Maintenance: Functional and Aesthetic
Green Stormwater Infrastructure requires frequent and careful maintenance to ensure that systems continue to function as intended. These systems include public and private bioretention projects including rain gardens, roadside tree trenches and bump outs, green roofs and bioretention swales. Maintenance consists of removing trash, accumulated sediment and other organic debris that may be clogging up the system as well as pruning and weeding to encourage specific plant growth and maintain aesthetic standards.
Non-GSI maintenance encompasses your general aesthetic garden care: seasonal clean ups, pruning, weeding, mulching and adding or replacing plants as needed.
