dc.description.abstractOnly limited research and in-depth analysis is available on phytoremedic rain garden design in the Piedmont region of the United States. The purpose of this thesis is to answer the question, what are the possibilities and limitations of phytoremedic rain gardens in the Piedmont region of the Southeastern United States. This thesis investigates the development of storm water control measures in the United States, residential rain garden design, phytoremediation in rain gardens, and the aesthetic value of rain garden plants. In addition, a study was conducted to provide a detailed analysis of four plant species and their potential performance in rain gardens based on levels of storm water inundation. The recorded information will provide insight into the possibilities and limitations of using these four plants in Piedmont regional rain garden designs.
