Rain gardens are special native plant gardens that capture rainwater draining from your property (usually from your roof/downspouts). Rain gardens allow the water to soak back into the ground (cleaning it) instead of running off into stormwater drains. Learn more about rain gardens here.
This kit is great for creating rain gardens and bioswales or for planting in wet areas of your yard in full/part sun.
