Inglewood City Hall Ocean Friendly Garden
One of a series of public works projects sponsored by West Basin Municipal Water District, this Ocean Friendly Demonstration Garden located in front of Inglewood's City Hall serves as a beautiful and functional civic amenity.
The existing lawn was removed and the site graded to capture runoff from the 900 sq ft adjacent walkway and divert it into two retention basins designed to capture and infiltrate stormwater. The demonstration garden features recycled materials which provide places for sitting, socializing, and enjoying the garden and it serves to educate the public about sustainable landscape practices.
