Rain Garden

A garden used to help rain runoff to be reabsorbed  by the soil. Typically a rain garden is planted with deep-rooted native plants that also provide floral resources and habitat for a variety of pollinators and are dry within 24 to 48 hours after a rain event. 

Rain gardens support pollinators, birds, soil, and our water systems. Homeowners, business owners, farmers, and even schools can implement a rain garden into their landscape.
