Rain Garden

What is a rain garden?

A rain garden is a landscaped area where rain water can collect, infiltrate into the soil, be used by plants, and generally be slowed down or stopped from running off into the local stream. The benefits of a rain garden are:

•Increased water infiltration into the soil

•Beautification of your garden and increased property value

•Reduced stormwater runoff from your property

•Reduced pollutant loading to our streams
