Rainwater gardens help to filter and conserve rainwater. Here’s how they work.

Carefully designed rain parks help to draw water to the designated area and keep it away from ground and storm drains.

Hardy planets, such as highways and sidewalks, move water quickly into hurricanes, removing chemicals from roof shingles and roadways. The drainage in the garden helps the water to get into the soil, which plants can use and clean.

Choosing a location for your rain garden is an important step. The garden should be at least 10 feet away from your home or other structures to ensure that water is transferred to your home, not your home.

Look for areas of natural depression or depression. Pay attention to where the water flows from sidewalks and driveways and look for ways to turn the water into a garden.
