Summary
Rain gardens are at the forefront of the green revolution. They allow rainwater to follow the natural course of the water cycle. Rainwater is absorbed into the ground, taken up by plants, and evaporated back into the atmosphere. This environmentally friendly landscaping captures rainwater runoff rather than redirecting it into storm drains. The result is less erosion, less water pollution, and a beautiful, low-maintenance, sustainable garden, and they can help keep the basement dry. This is a rain garden handbook for the backyard home gardener. The authors draw on hands-on experience to help homeowners build beautiful rain gardens in their own yards. Illustrated with color photography, this instructive book offers specific advice about planning, building, planting, and maintaining the rain garden. Learn about city grants, how to calculate runoff, rain barrels, attracting wildlife, gray water recycling, and much more
