The Rain Garden Design Challenge

on January 13, 2015

Fourth Grade students worked hard today exploring ways to better use the lower school courtyard.  Students brainstromed examples of brightspots (roses), thorns (painspots), and rosebuds (potential) for the space.  We looked at all the different people that needed to be involved with the decision.  Students looked at important factors such as cost, maintenance, and different uses of the space.  We will be talking with a landscape designer next week to consider the benefits of a rain garden for the space.
