Homeowners are becoming more aware of storm water management. Many are choosing to manage the runoff from their property with rain gardens, shallow depressions that effectively collect storm water and reduce localized flooding. Rain gardens can be integrated into the existing landscape or included in initial landscaping plans.
To effectively manage storm water, rain gardens must be accurately sized and properly constructed. This presentation will demonstrate a method for sizing, designing, and selecting appropriate plant material for a rain garden.
It is free and open to the public.
