[ARCHIVED] Rain Gardens: the perfect combination of form and function

What's a rain garden, you ask?

Rain gardens are shallow depressions filled with native plants designed to catch storm water runoff from roof gutters, streets, parking lots or other areas. Rain gardens are being widely implemented across the country to manage storm water, and are used as a resource instead of channeling water runoff to storm drains that lead directly to area creeks, rivers and lakes. Managing storm water onsite with rain gardens helps to reduce downstream erosion, flooding and pollution and also recharges the groundwater aquifer.

A rain garden could be a beautiful and functional addition to your property. More information and resources on rain gardens»
