Rain garden

A shallow, constructed depression that is planted with deep-rooted native plants and grasses. It is located in the landscaping to receive runoff from hard surfaces, such as a roof, sidewalk, or driveway. Rain gardens slow the rush of water from these hard surfaces and hold the water for a short period of time, allowing the water to naturally filter into the ground. Rain gardens help control stormwater runoff.
