Spring Garden Tips
Rain Garden
Help reduce area flooding and save money on your water bill. Channel rain water back into the ground with the help of a rain garden. A well placed and properly planned rain garden can help capture runoff from your home’s roof, walks and drives. The water is captured in the garden and what isn’t used by the plants is filtered through the soil and eventually recharges the ground water. This is good for your garden and helps the environment by reducing storm water entering your municipal sewer system.
