Rain gardens are depressions in the ground that collect and soak up stormwater runoff from roads, roofs, driveways, and other hard surfaces. They are relatively simple to install, are beautiful additions to the landscape, and help prevent water pollution. And now NEMO has made it even easier to install a rain garden of your very own with a new website and the nation’s first Rain Garden smartphone app.
The app and website are aimed at homeowners, landscape professionals, municipal staff, or others who are interested in properly installing one or more rain gardens. This webinar will provide a live demonstration of the dynamic features of the app, which include a searchable plant database and tools that help site, size and install your rain garden properly. It will also highlight the features of NEMO & Connecticut Fund for the Environment’s new Rain Garden website for those without a smartphone.
