April showers bring May flowers, so it's the perfect time to build yourself a Rain Garden. It will catch and filter stormwater right at your home. Rain Gardens are a beautiful way to remove pollutants, provide habitat, prevent flooding, and keep our waterways clean. Here are some tips to help you get started with your sustainable rain garden:
1. Select a Location. A rain garden is most successful when it captures runoff, so place the garden near a downspout, driveway, or at the bottom of a slope.
2. Choose Plants. Your rain garden can be made up of a variety of native plants, including shrubs or flowers, plants for sun or shade, or plants to attract certain pollinators. When choosing plants for your rain garden, be sure to select those that can thrive in damp soil.
3. Install & Maintain. Dig the space for your rain garden 4-6" deep. Loosen the soil, plan, and then top with a layer of mulch.
For more information about constructing rain gardens, you can visit Penn State Extension's website or Stormwater PA's website, for a helpful video.
