What is a Rain Garden?

These specialized gardens collect rain water from a roof, driveway, street or sidewalk and allow it to soak into the ground. Planted with native grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs, rain gardens can be a beautiful addition to your home landscape while reducing runoff from your property. 

Town of Black Mountain and River Link staff will discuss the many benefits of Residential Rain Gardens on September 13 at 6:30 pm at the Lakeview Center.
