Slot Lot





A simple concept

Slot lot transforms an asphalt parking lot into a raingarden by cutting a pattern of perforations into the surface.  The result is an unconventional raingarden form that allows the lot to capture and infiltrate rain.  A new American garden carved from the post industrial landscape.

stress test

Slot Lot functions in part like trial garden for native plants.   Conditions on the lot can be harsh: heat, wind, and prolonged dry periods test a plants ability to survive.  Plants like Rudbekia, shown here, Little Blue Stem, Swamp Milkweed, and several Aster species respond favorably.
