About: Your rain garden is more than a flower bed. It’s a working part of the landscape, designed to capture stormwater runoff from the roof, sidewalk, driveway and other hard surfaces on your property. A rain garden helps to replenish groundwater supplies, reduces soil erosion, and prevents pollutants from reaching local lakes, streams or wetlands.

Join us to learn the best maintenance strategies to ensure your rain garden retains its function and beauty over time. This free workshop includes two components—a video, which will be emailed to you in advance, and a virtual meeting with local experts and staff from your city and watershed district. Whether you’ve installed a raingarden with help from a grant or city rebate, or if it was a permit requirement, we can help you understand what to do to keep your raingarden healthy and working properly.
