LaMar Residence

The Project:

The LaMars replaced their gutter and added rain chain that empties into a clay pot. The pot is connected to an underground pipe that discharges into a dry creek and then empties into a detention basin. The LaMars also installed water-saving irrigation and replaced their lawn with California Friendly vegatation.

Homeowner’s Perspective:

Jeanne LaMar, “I wanted to pull out the turf in my front yard for water conservation, and then through the LID Project I learned how we could also improve water quality and have lower maintenance. We chose drought-tolerant plants that were most flowering and aromatic- I like to call it a ‘California Cottage’ theme.”

Who made it happen?:
