What is a Rain Garden?
A rain garden is a landscaped area designed to capture and hold access rain water for a short period, allowing it to soak into the soil and recharge the groundwater. Rain gardens help slow the flow of water from a yard during and after a storm, reducing water pollution and allowing groundwater recharge.
