Alameda County Low Impact Development Demonstration Garden

Location: Alameda Public Works Building, Hayward

Project Type:

PGAdesign was hired to re-design the surrounding landscape of the Alameda County Public Works Agency building in Hayward to make a Low Impact Development (LID) demonstration garden.
The goal was to have a landscape that demonstrates different solutions to treat stormwater run-off, including biofiltration areas, flow-through planters, modular suspended paving system for biofiltration, and a modular wetland system. Additionally, the impermeable parking surface was converted to permeable asphalt and permeable pavers; and overhead solar panels have been placed on a large portion of the parking lot footprint.
The planting and irrigation plans represent best practices for water conservation and sustainability which includes replacing the existing lawn with native planting, 100% low water use plants palette, drip irrigation, WELO compliance, and re-use of wood waste from tree trimming for mulching.

Certifications and awards California Stormwater Quality Association (CASAQ) Outstanding Best Management Practice Implementation Project, 2020
