Rain Garden Design
Rain gardens are aesthetic and functional landscape features that retain rainwater, provide beauty and habitat, and can reduce water runoff from your property. Water collected in the rain garden slowly infiltrates into the soil to support plant growth and lessen runoff into storm drains according to UNL Extension Specialists Tom Franti and Steve Rodie. Homeowners can learn more from the new “Rain Garden Design” interactive Extension publication.
