Rain gardens

Capturing water on your landscape (aka garden) is a good thing.  We DON'T want water to sheet off or run off anywhere, rather soaking in (as it does in undisturbed natural landscapes).

"Rain gardens" are a bit of an invented concept (in my opinion), but learning about how they can be used and adapted (along with other "natural" water management approaches) are certainly useful encouragement!

I've attached a link to a presentation that I've recently developed.  Check out the plant list, too, if you're interested.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
