Do you want a garden that’s easy to install, looks good year-round, requires little maintenance, and helps prevent water pollution? Rain gardens are shallow depressions designed to soak up water and support trees, shrubs, and flowers that tolerate both wet and dry conditions. A rain garden is not a pond and won’t breed mosquitoes. By absorbing the rain falling on your land, a rain garden can help reduce storm-water runoff that pollutes our beaches, canals, and estuaries. This workshop covers the basics of designing and installing a rain garden, with an emphasis on using native plants.
