Rain gardens are an excellent way to manage stormwater while adding aesthetics to your landscape. This sustainable design practice works with the existing landscape to use excess rainfall in beneficial ways, allowing homeowners to reduce the impacts of flooding and maintain beautiful gardens with lower water bills.
In this interactive class, you will learn how to build a rain garden by combining water-loving perennials and shrubs to create an ecogorgeous rain garden design to help manage water on your property and seamlessly blend into traditional landscapes. Walk away with lists of suitable plants and plant combinations for rain gardens, as well as strategies for stormwater management in the home landscape.
