Rain Gardens are depressions in the Landscape that are often planted with native flowers, shrubs, and trees. These spaces allow storm water from impervious surfaces and snowmelt runoff to be captured, stored, and infiltrated into the landscape. Instead of flowing over the surface of the landscape and potentially causing erosion or transporting contaminants into our lakes, the water soaks into the ground. This process provides moisture to help support the plants in the garden, which in turn support the native insect and bird populations that depend on these plants for food and shelter.
