Water in the Landscape: 
Design Considerations for Passive Water Management within the Landscape

Daniel A. Peterson
Landscape Designer and Ecologist, 
HabAdapt Landscape Design

Landscape design is more than installing a perennial garden space.  Water, especially when dealing with climate effects, is critical for establishing and maintaining diverse landscapes.  I will be discussing grade detailing, soil modifications, rain garden and gravity cistern basics for storing water within the landscape for extended use.  I will also be discussing basic water volume calculations as well as infiltration rates to aid in determining storage potentials.

Daniel Abdon Peterson is the the owner and designer of HabAdapt Landscape Design. He focuses on developing designs, landscapes and spaces aimed at long-term sustainability and functionality based on ecologic and permaculture systems design.  His projects range from small courtyard design, art and sculptural elements, to larger farmstead design and planning. Daniel is a registered member of the DSWA-GB (Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain) as an Advanced Dry Stone Craftsman, member of ELA (Ecological Landscape Alliance), member of The Stone Trust and a Qualified Professional Member of APLD (Association of Professional Landscape Designers.)  Samples of his design and work can be found at
