Rain Gardens reduce flooding and storm water pollution, improving water quality in our streams and rivers for aquatic life and recreational users.
What is a Rain Garden?
Beautiful landscaped areas built down, instead of up, intercepting runoff from buildings, driveways and other impervious surfaces before it can reach the storm sewers and streams. Small gardens are typically 6-12 inches deep and drain within a day or two after a rain. Plants are water and drought tolerant and need little or no watering after they are established..
