Rain gardens are a fabulous addition to any landscaping plan. Not only are they beautiful to look upon, but they help clean up the environment as the water circulates through the roots and vegetation that populate them. As urban areas become more polluted, adding a rain garden is an easy way to give Mother Nature a helping hand.
As water runs into your garden, it provides an area where water can seep into the soil and replenish natural aquifers buried deep below. It also provides a natural habitat that is inviting and welcoming for everything from birds to bees as they fly overhead. Essentially, it attracts the very critters and creatures into your yard that keep your trees and plants healthy and nourished.
Thus, not only will your landscape help reduce runoff, but it will also create a habitat in your backyard that will look simply stunning throughout the year. Further, since they require little maintenance and are relatively inexpensive to install, it’s a feature you are certain to enjoy.
