Everyone shares in the benefits of rain gardens:

  • Add beauty and variety to your yard, improvement to the property
  • Reduce flooding and erosion in your property and neighborhood
  • Provide habitat and food for birds and pollinators
  • Recharge local groundwater aquifers
  • Reduce lawn maintenance - less mowing, watering, and use of chemicals
  • Filter pollutants before they reach ditches and eventually, streams and larger bodies of water
  • Reduce strain on stormwater systems by intercepting runoff that would otherwise go directly into drains
  • Connect you to your community
