Build a Rain Garden

Rain gardens are shallow depressions, typically planted with plants, strategically located to collect, infiltrate and filter rain that falls on hard surfaces like roofs, driveways, alleys, or streets to minimise negative impacts of excessive runoff from these surfaces on lakes and streams. Landcare Research has some great information and link to help you in designing a rain garden so well worth having a nosey!
