ART3 Raingarden Mix
Art3 Mix is a specific rain garden mix developed in conjunction with infrastructure and engineering specialists in Christchurch. Lab tested, the properties of ART3 Mix allow it to perform infiltration of water at a specified rate, while containing a level of organic matter to sustain and grow attractive plants in the rain gardens. Currently several raingardens using ART3 have been installed around central Christchurch.
