The Oregon Rain Garden Guide

Publication Type:

Published / Updated:

Although this guide focuses on rain gardens in Oregon, the same basic principles are true regardless of your geographic location. A rain garden is a depression or low spot near a downspout or other low area in the yard that collects runoff from your roof, driveway, or yard and aids in the collection and filtering of rain water, allowing it to gradually seep into the ground. Planted with deep rotted shrubs and perennials, rain gardens are not only beautiful but help provide important environmental benefits. These gardens can help reduce the amount of pollutants that run off into nearby waterways. This guide contains extensive information as well as sample rain garden layouts and detailed plant lists. Download this detailed guide to learn more about the environmental benefits of a rain garden.
