It’s very low maintenance. The rain garden requires only little maintenance, such as cutting, fertilizing and weeding. It blooms all summer long.
It’s eco friendly. In many cases gardens are irrigated with large amounts of tap water but the rain garden can thrive with mainly rainwater. Load to the sewer system is reduced when the rainwater is channeled to the rain garden and its bioretention area. The plants of the rain garden also bind harmful substances that are in the rainwater.
You no longer have to wonder where to channel rainwater in your yard. The excessive rainwater, or urban runoff, can now be directed for the use of the plants. The rain garden will not flood during the summer since the structure of the rain garden redirects the urban runoff for the plants to use.
It is simply lovely. Affordable, beautiful and natural plants are the base of the rain garden. They make your yard meadowlike, filled with a variety of different plants.
