Rain Gardens

Rain Gardens – a water management solution

Rain Gardens are a sometimes necessary and attractive part of a drainage system. They are used in place of, or just after, a dry well or dispersion trench.

The Rain Garden is often times lined with river rock to give a natural look, and wet footed plants to help soak up some of the water. Where there are pour draining soils, a Rain Garden can hold a large quantity of water during heavy rain events. Because the Rain Garden in not back-filled to the top with rock it can hold more water than a traditional dry well.  In effect a Rain Garden is a small seasonal pond. The only draw back of a Rain Garden is it takes up yard space and standing water will be visible during heavy rains.
