Ron Gascoyne visits the studio from Lowe’s and shows the audience how to make their own rain gardens at home. What is a rain garden you might ask? A rain garden is a landscaped area that collects, absorbs, and filters storm water runoff from rooftops, driveways, patios, and other hard surfaces that don’t allow water to soak in. Rain gardens are sized to accommodate temporary ponding after it rains and are not meant to be permanent ponds.
Rain gardens are important because they limit the amount of contaminated water reaching our steams and Puget Sound area by acting as a natural filter.
For complete guidance on how to design, install and maintain a rain garden, download a free copy of the “Rain Garden Handbook for Western Washington” and find additional information and resources at www.12000RainGardens.org/resources
