Thinking of adding a rain garden to your yard? Smart choice! A rain garden is a beautiful addition to your landscape that also provides a valuable function. By causing water to absorb slowly into the ground it reduces and sometimes even prevent flooding. A rain garden also helps keep stormwater run-off from carrying pollution to our drinking water sources. Join us for an in-depth review of the benefits of installing a rain garden at your home and get some basic how-to suggestions.
At the end of this program, Summit and Summit area residents you can also register for a free, 30-minute consultation scheduled for April 8, 5-8 PM. Rutgers University engineers and landscape architects will work with you to plan and lay out a rain garden specific to your yard. You will leave with a design plan and a list of recommended plants. You MUST attend the March 25th program to qualify for the April 8 design session. No exceptions.
Take advantage of these two free Summit Area Rain Garden programs, co-hosted by GSWA & Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program. Registration is required. You will receive Zoom login details post-registration.
This program is sponsored by a grant from The Mary Reinhart Stackhouse Foundation for the purpose of improving Summit area’s water quality, one yard at a time.
