Rain Gardens

April 19, 2011

Presented by Michael Dietz, UConn CLEAR

A rain garden is a depressed area in the landscape designed to collect and infiltrate stormwater. In addition to treating stormwater, rain gardens can be beautiful additions to the home landscape. This webinar will provide an overview of the functions and features of rain gardens. Learn how to size them, where to locate them, how to install them, and what types of plants to put in them. The focus will be on residential scale rain gardens, but a brief coverage of bioretention systems will be provided as well.
