Rain gardens are a smart and proven way of using beautiful landscaping to: beautify and improve homes and neighborhoods, reduce flooding, clean our waterways, protect our precious natural habitats and save millions of dollars in pollution clean-up and massive utility construction projects.

A rain garden is a bowl-shaped garden designed to slow, filter, and absorb (infiltrate, in technical terms) runoff from roofs or pavement keeping it from becoming harmful water pollution.

Rain gardens are carefully designed to achieve their goal by using spongy living soils and properly chosen plants.
