A rain garden is a new type of garden bed for low areas or depressions where water accumulates. These gardens are planted with native plants and shrubs that are ideal for the wet conditions. The rain after a storm fills the garden with a few inches of rain and the water then slowly filters into the ground rather than being lost to runoff. On average, a rain garden allows 30% more water to soak into the ground that a standard patch of grass.
