Better Ground


What is a rain garden?

Are you tired of lawn? A rain garden is a perfect alternative – bringing color, biodiversity, and functionality to your yard. A rain garden is a depression which diverts rainwater from your roof or driveway into the ground, instead of running off into the nearest stream or Puget Sound. 

How do I build a rain garden?

Rain Gardens are a feasible do-it-yourself project. Here are some resources to get you started, or call your local conservation district for a helping hand.
