Can I have a rain garden on my lot, even if it is small?
Absolutely. The surface area of a rain garden can be almost any size, although labor and cost should be considered when determining the final size. Ensure that the overflow for your rain garden will encourage water to move away from your foundation.
Do rain gardens provide a place for mosquitoes to breed?
When properly designed, rain gardens should drain in 24 to 48 hours while mosquitoes need 7 to 12 days to hatch. Also, rain gardens attract dragonflies that feed on mosquitoes!
Can I put more than one rain garden on my property?
Yes. The more rain water you can infiltrate on your property, the better.
How much maintenance should I expect?
Rain gardens can be maintained with minimal effort once established. Similar to a perennial garden, cut back the perennials in the winter, remove weeds, and top-dress bark mulch as needed.
