Through an on-call contract awarded in 2016 by the City of Raleigh, SEPI is providing design services for the addition of a stormwater management device and is developing designs for a rain garden at the Rose Garden.

The new features are being designed for incorporation into the existing Rose Garden; a historic site within the City that hosts special events throughout the year and is open year-round for citizens and visitors to enjoy its beautiful gardens, bench seating dispersed under mature trees, and natural walking paths.

The site is also home to the Raleigh Little Theater. The design of the rain garden and the associated drainage infrastructure is being done to minimize the impact to the existing conditions, including the existing rose garden beds and several large oak trees surrounding the site.
