Rain Gardens – Good for the Environment, Good for Your Home’s Landscape
A rain garden is a sustainable water capture system that helps to reduce the amount of water runoff and pollution entering our underground utilities, like stormwater sewers, and waterways. This type of landscaping design can be installed in both residential and commercial settings, but it’s most popular with homeowners looking for ways to protect their property from flooding and soil erosion. These types of gardens are designed to be shallow depressions or basins that collect rain water. The design typically includes native plant species with deep roots which can tolerate wet soil conditions. The goal is for the garden to absorb rainfall before it enters our storm sewers and waterways. This reduces flooding, erosion, and pollution downstream by preventing sedimentation on riverbeds and providing habitat for wildlife upstream.

Benefits of Rain Gardens
There are many benefits to installing rain gardens as a water capture solution for your property, including:
Reduce Stormwater Runoff and Flooding
Rain gardens collect and use water that would otherwise be diverted to our already overrun stormwater sewers. (a rain garden soaks up at least 30% more water than a lawn)
Provides Erosion Control
Deep-rooted established rain garden plants, such as trees, shrubs, tall grasses, and wildflowers, help to reduce the amount of erosion caused by excessive amounts of stormwater runoff.
Improves Water Quality
Rain gardens filter out sediment and other pollutants that would otherwise flow untreated into nearby waterways by catching the first inch of runoff with the highest concentration of pollutants.
Provide Wildlife Habitat
Rain gardens are vital for the survival of wildlife. They provide a refuge from deteriorating habitats and offer food at various times of the year when other sources may be scarce or nonexistent.
