Learn why cities have programs to promote the construction of tens of thousands of rain gardens nationwide. See how to design and install a rain garden and barrel system. Capture seasonal rain water for future use and/or gather it for infiltration through a depressed garden area to recharge the ground water.
Discover how you can develop a sustainable landscape which promotes native wildlife, utilizes less irrigation, and uses fewer fertilizers and pesticides. The emphasis will also be on soils, amendments, plant selection, irrigation, mulching and maintenance.
