One of the easiest ways to start to integrate green infrastructure on your property is to use a downspout redirect. Their purpose is to move stormwater away from homes and on to permeable surfaces. Downspout redirects help to divert water from asphalt and pavement onto permeable soils and help stave off stormwater damage.
Make sure to do it right!! A downspout that directs water towards your driveway or sewer is NOT effective in managing the water runoff. As long as the spout is directed towards your lawn, garden or any other permeable surfaces, you have many aesthetic options!
