Webinar Description:
Updated for 2020 using recent drainage enhancement projects, this webinar will focus on the low impact development (LID) principals, methods, and materials of site drainage including utilizing the landscape to capture and treat storm water runoff.
The webinar will provide guidance on how to:
Read grading and drainage plans
Create and install functioning drainage systems
Incorporate unique design elements in a drainage installation
Utilize drainage systems to protect and benefit ecosystems from site to sea

The webinar will review drainage solutions that can be constructed in the field and those that are available prefabricated from different manufacturers. Greg will also provide basic instruction on indispensable grading and layout tools for the landscape contractor such as a builder's level / transit, rotary laser levels, and high accuracy GPS equipment.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the principles of landscape drainage and the engineering fundamentals to create an effective drainage system.
2. Learn how the landscape can be used to collect, capture, and treat storm water runoff.
3. Learn how storm water management infrastructure can be used as an elegant component of the functional landscape.
