Why rain gardens?

During drought, a rain garden captures every elusive drop to keep our landscapes lush and green. In periods of heavy rain, rain gardens ease the force of flooding and erosion by allowing storm water to infiltrate slowly into the ground.

In the long run, rain gardens also save money by conserving water, and reducing maintenance and energy use. The reduction in the need for chemical controls makes them a healthier environment for everyone: children, adults, and the native wildlife.

Last but not least, rain gardens add an element of natural beauty without the back-breaking effort of a high-maintenance landscape! This is something you can truly enjoy season after season.
