HOW TO INSTALL A RAIN BARREL 

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.

10 Things You Can Do to Prevent Pollution from Stormwater Runoff from Oldham County Environmental Authority

Check out the recent Redfin article we were featured in:

Rain gardens are designed to collect stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces, such as roofs, streets, driveways, patios, parking lots, or waterlogged yards. The runoff is then allowed to seep back into the ground slowly, preventing it from reaching local waterways. Rain gardens are planted with tough plants that thrive during brief periods of inundation and drought, providing attractive habitats for pollinators and other wildlife.

Whether you’re buying a home in the rainy city of New Orleans, LA, or considering moving to West Plam Beach, FL, where you get 63 inches of rain a year, this may be the perfect home improvement project. Installing a rain garden can be challenging - expect to get sweaty - but it's all worth it for the numerous environmental benefits rain gardens provide. In this article, you’ll learn all about rain gardens, including the purpose and benefits, how they work, and expert tips for creating your own. Let’s get started.
