The last storm brought us a few episodes of short but intense rainfall. We watched from within our studio, mesmerized by the amount of water pouring out from our copper scuppers and into the cobble collection basin below. The water then travels below the cobbles and through a pipe into a bioswale, having the opportunity to soak into the ground along the way. The intent here is to let as much water as possible infiltrate into the ground right here on our site. A carefully designed water collection system not only functions effectively but can be beautiful to see.
