Raingarden benefits


Raingardens and other Green Infrastructure technologies such as swales, filtration beds, constructed wetlands, and living roofs and walls, provide multiple ecosystems services, including climate change adaptation and mitigation.  Increasing the amount of SUDS and other types of GI in urban areas is considered a key climate adaptation strategy, primarily though delivering increased resilience to flooding and higher temperatures, urban cooling and pollution absorption, and by enabling other species to adapt by providing a more vegetated and permeable landscape through which they can migrate.
