Rain Gardens
A rain garden, small or large, will help manage rain water that falls on any property, assisting it to flow into the ground and continue the cycle we need to maintain the sources of water in our community.

Rain gardens are appropriate for residential and business property, and public land. They are especially helpful for places that normally tend to flood during heavy rains.
