Rain Gardens are an easy way to beautify your yard and the world while contributing to a clean lake.


Plant A Rain Garden

Rain gardens and bioretention/infiltration devices allow about 30 percent more water to soak into the ground compared to a conventional lawn. These native plant gardens enhance groundwater recharge and reduce stormwater runoff and pollution while attracting birds, butterflies and beneficial pollinators.
