Thirsty Thursday

This here is another interesting solution for preventing water runoff in your neighborhoods, and a right pretty one, too.

stone-lined storm drain

I just ran across it, and am thinking it was put in within the year or two. The stones have been solidly in place with moisture held around them.

moss between stones

Moss has already gotten a foothold in the crevasses, with grass filling in behind it. Likely it’ll grow to a carpet of green within a few years. Can’t think of a nicer replacement for a solid concrete storm drain. Thank you, creative human gardeners!
