Rain gardens are landscape features designed to capture, slow, clean and store stormwater runoff from hard surface areas such as roofs and driveways.
They include sunken garden spaces where runoff can pond and infiltrate into deep constructed soils and then into the native soils below.
By allowing rainwater to infiltrate through a rain garden rather than enter the stormwater system, we can reduce flooding in our neighbourhoods and protect aquatic habitat by reducing erosion and pollution in our creeks and streams.
Join us for this FREE webinar to review the basics of designing and using a rain garden for rainwater management in a residential setting, including site and soil evaluation, sizing, best practices, plating selection, overflow and maintenance requirements.
Expert Tayler Krawczyk, a local landscape garden professional and ecological landscape designer, will lead this session on small residential water management systems and raingardens.
