Spring Garden Tips
Rain Chains
RainChain.jpgReplace your downspouts with rain chains. Simple or fancy, homemade or purchased your imagination and budget are your only limit. Use weather resistant materials and secure to your gutters. Run them from the gutter into a rain barrel, rain garden or dry stream bed. These rain chains were part of the Temple University display garden at the 2009 Philadelphia Flower.
