Rain Gardens 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rain Gardens are becoming a popular conservation practice in urban areas because they are a small step that landowners can make to help decrease runoff and flooding in their community. Rain gardens are created to be depressional garden areas where surface runoff can collect and perculate down through the soil.  Perculation is improved through soil ammendments and the use of deep rooted native plants.
