A rain garden is a shallow depression that collects rainwater and is often planted with native plants.
They can blend with your existing landscape, and design can be formal or informal. A rain garden is
a great place to direct the water from disconnected downspouts or paved areas, or to capture the over-
flow from a rainwater harvesting system.
The video below gives you detailed instructions on how to build a rain garden on your property.
