Design for minimal maintenance, passive irrigation canals.

The project is to create a margin which entirely shades the interior of the canal.

Carex pendula has deep roots, dense foliage, is highly shade tolerant, and has the potential to purify water. Its strength may prevent wild boars from digging on the margins.
