SEPI is excited to announce that our talented Landscape Architecture team has won the City of Raleigh Climate Action Award for Land Conservation and Air Quality for our work on the Raleigh Rose Garden.
The Climate Action Awards recognize the work of residents, organizations and businesses throughout Raleigh that advances the goals of Raleigh’s Community Climate Action Plan. The plan’s objectives are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050, build community resilience to climate change impacts and support climate equity.
The renovation of the Rose Garden integrated green stormwater infrastructure that redirects and absorbs stormwater runoff while providing overall water quality benefits. Plants within and surrounding the stormwater device feature a mix of native plants and flowering perennials to encourage natural biodiversity and protection of pollinators.
