Rain Garden 2A rain garden is a shallow landscaped area in your yard planted to wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and other native vegetation.  It is designed to collect, dissipate, and move water through soil and plants, and filters rain water from your roof, driveway, sidewalks, and lawn before it enters a storm drain or nearby stream.  

A rain garden can be your personal contribution to cleaner water and an improved environment!
