Rain Garden

A Rain Garden is a shallow, flat depression, 4-8″ deep, planted with native plants and/or other species, that are adapted to the expected moisture conditions of the garden. They are located in the landscape to collect and hold rain water run-off from surrounding surfaces such as turf, pavement and roofs. Typically, rain gardens fill with water after a storm, which slowly soaks into the ground within 24 hours. Rain gardens are dry between rainfall events.
