Look, I’m going to cut to the chase. No beating around the bush. Because I know you’re cool and you would do the same for me.
So here it is.
All the cool kids are doing it. So you should too.
You need to get yourself a RAIN GARDEN in your yard. Stat.
No idea what we’re talking about? That’s cool too.
Rain gardens are simply a planned retention and infiltration area for runoff.
That’s it. Everything else is details.
What can a rain garden do for you?
Rain gardens are designed to trap and hold water on your landscape. These gardens can be useful to help naturally irrigate your garden or to prevent erosion in your landscape.
There’s an additional benefit as well – you’re doing your part to reduce the burden on stressed sewer systems nationwide. You can also interpret that this way: rain gardens also help prevent your poop from going into your river.
Installation can range from a very simple design to a complex and well-planned system. The beauty is that even the simplest design will have a positive impact.
