    Benefits of rain gardens this fall

    A carefully placed rain garden in your lawn can help reduce flooding in your community, filter pollution out of rainwater and much more!

    During a rainstorm, our roofs, sidewalks and driveways create thousands of gallons of stormwater runoff that can cause flooding and soil erosion. This runoff also carries pollution such as motor fluids, trash, lawn chemicals and bacteria into local waterways.

    Shaped like a bowl, a rain garden captures water and soaks it into the ground, just as nature intended. Rain gardens can also protect and replenish drinking water supplies; provide important food and shelter for wildlife; and replace wet areas with a lovely garden feature!

    Consider constructing a rain garden or contacting your local landscaper for more ideas.
