Rain Gardens— Landscaping for Water Conservation and Purification
Are you concerned about water runoff to the street, pond, lakes or even wondered where all that water goes?
Well, if this is you, why not consider a rain garden? We design, build and plant rain gardens to Soak Up The Rain.
Storm water runoff, erosion runoff during heavy rain, and poor drainage are all water concern issues.
Rain Gardens are beautiful and when designed and installed correctly, protect our precious environment.
The gardens are designed to capture and absorb rainfall runoff and are cost-effective. When water travels over hard surfaces such as driveways, walkways, pollutants often get picked up and transported to lakes and rivers. A rain garden Soaks Up The Rain!
