Rain Gardens

Rain Garden Photo    Rain Garden Picture

Rain gardens are small man-made vegetated depressions that help to retain and slowly release stormwater flow.  They decrease surface runoff and improve water quality by capturing sediment and treating other pollutants.  The planting of appropriate species, such as iris, cardinal flower, and arrowhead, creates wildlife habitat and helps to make rain gardens one of the most attractive stormwater treatment options available.

Rain gardens can vary from relatively dry depressions to structures that hold several inches of standing water for part of the year.  Terra Technologies' knowledge of local and watershed hydrology as well as our experience with native wetland plants allows us to create rain gardens of the appropriate size, dimensions, and species mix to maximize the stormwater treatment value and aesthetic appeal of rain gardens on any property.
