A great way to address a difficult landscape situation – wet areas in your yard.

Consider planting a rain garden!

Why plant a rain garden? No doubt you have noticed areas in your yard that hold water after rain events, or you have an area that gets saturated with water from downspouts or sump lines. Installing native plants in that wet spot can help create a more diverse habitat, help absorb excess water, support pollinators and add beauty to your yard.
