What is a Rain Garden?
A rain garden is a landscaped area planted with native plants and flowers that soaks up rain water. The garden fills with a few inches of rain water that runs off the roof of a building or parking lot during a storm. After the storm the water slowly soaks into the ground instead of running into a storm sewer or waterway.
