Rain Garden Design and Installation Video
Vermont Green Infrastructure Collaborative manager Becky Tharp presented a webinar for the Vermont Master Gardeners about rain gardens. In the video, she provides information about how to design, install, and maintain a rain garden.
Rain gardens are depressed areas filled with plants that are tolerant to inundation and drought scenarios. They help to prevent stormwater runoff using infiltration and evapotranspiration. They protect water quality and recharge groundwater, mimicking a site's natural hydrology.
