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.

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.
