Plant our Rain Resilience Pre-Planned Garden to collect and retain rain and storm-water runoff on your property. Our expert garden designers have combined native wildflowers that thrive in moist soil, such as Lobelia, Swamp Milkweed, Joe Pye, and Bee Balm, with sedge grasses. These plants have deep, resilient root systems that play an integral part in filtering water and preventing erosion.
Rain gardens help to manage runoff from your roof, driveway, or other impervious surfaces, slowing down the flow of water to prevent flooding and filter out pollutants. Why? This protects clean water in our rivers, lakes, and streams. Compared to lawns, rain gardens can absorb up to 30% more water! Plus, native plants help to support a healthy ecosystem, offering food and habitat for birds, bees, butterflies, and wildlife. The colorful perennials in this garden offer a beautiful mix of flower forms, fragrance, and foliage textures. Plants will naturalize to fill out your garden as they mature and offer years of lasting beauty.
