Seven Steps to a Backyard Rain Garden
October 22, 2019 at 12:30 pm • Reynolda Gardens Education Wing
Rain Gardens are a delightful solution to standing water problems in your yard and excessive runoff to the storm drain. A rain garden is typically a smaller garden in a shallow depression that is planted with deep-rooted native plants and grasses. The garden holds the water for a short time allowing it to be absorbed into the soil. Plants are selected based on their ability to withstand the extremes of moisture and concentrations of nutrients. There is also no reason your rain garden cannot do double duty as a pollinator-friendly habitat. Join us as we learn more about these wonderful gardens.
