 Rain Garden

A Rain Garden is a shallow depression designed to intentionally collect rain from surfaces such as roofs, driveways, slopes, and parking areas. While some water will evaporate, the rest is left to soak into the ground. A Rain Garden allows that water to be filtered naturally by plants, bacteria, and soils as it seeps underground.

There are many different ways to create Rain Gardens. Without knowing exact moisture conditions or weather patterns, Prairie Frontier recommends the general Rain Garden Mix. Unstable weather may bring heavy rainfall one day and drought conditions for two subsequent weeks or something else entirely. However, the general Rain Garden Mix will encompass all these possibilities.

The Rain Garden Mix consists of native plants for a variety of wet and dry conditions. Once established, this combination of plants will be able to endure even the most extreme weather patterns, from droughts to downpours. At that time, adding new plants and moving or trimming existing plants can further personalize the garden. In order to increase wildlife around the Rain Garden, add birdhouses, rocks, or old stumps. Doing so will attract birds and butterflies by providing a source of food for them, while naturally filtering runoffs in your yard.
