WHAT IS A RAIN GARDEN?
A rain garden is a planted area that mitigates storm water runoff. It slows runoff and filters out harmful chemicals before they get to local streams.
You can place a rain garden wherever there is rainwater runoff on your property:
- near gutter pipes
- at the end of a dry stream bed
- or wherever the grading of your property directs storm water
At Five Seasons Landscaping, we have 25 years experience developing landscapes that mitigate storm water runoff and provide native plant habitats, long before it became hip. However, we do more than just create an environmentally beneficial garden design: we cultivate natural beauty that enhances your entire yard.
WHAT IS CONSERVATION LANDSCAPING?
Don’t have the budget for a rain garden? Try Conservation Landscaping. Montgomery County is offering rebates of up to $750.
Conservation landscaping uses native plants that are adapted to local rainfall and soil conditions. The goal of conservation gardening is to make local choices that benefit wildlife and the conservation of natural resources.
