Your contribution to clean water.
Create a beautiful natural area while helping the environment. Reduction in the amount of wetlands, increased impervious surfaces and high density development all contribute to the amount of runoff to our lakes and rivers. Less rain water is infiltrating to the groundwater system because of these factors, but rain gardens provide a viable solution for reducing storm water runoff. Rain gardens provide environmental benefits.
Rain gardens are typically relatively small depressions that detain runoff water. The runoff water is purified by plant material and engineered soil, which then infiltrates into the groundwater. Rain gardens can be planted with a wide range of native plant material that not only adds interest but attracts birds and butterflies.
