Water Wise Demonstration Garden

Eugene Oregon

 

The Water Wise demonstration garden is located near Alton Baker Park in Eugene Oregon. This garden exhibits different ways we can think about water and use resources responsibly. The project was initiated by the Eugene Water and Electric Board in partnership with the city of Eugene, Nearby Nature, Satre Associates and LandCurrent landscape architects. LandCurrent was responsible for the design work , with technical support from Satre. The demonstration garden features water wise innovations such as a rain garden, bio swales, and a water harvesting cistern. It also includes a drought tolerant planting palette and lawn species. LandCurrent proposed a rain sculpture that functions as a cistern overflow through the principle of communicating veins.
