Rain Gardens- Stream and Lake Friendly Landscaping

Areas landscaped with perennial native plants that don't mind getting "wet feet", rain gardens are an attractive way to reduce the impact of stormwater on streams and Lake Erie. Rain gardens are designed to capture and filter stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces such as rooftops and driveways. Learn about these systems and take home a guidebook containing information on how to select a site, construct your own, what type of plants work best and more.Visit www.oldwomancreek.org or call (419)433-4601 for more information.Areas landscaped with perennial native plants that don't mind getting "wet feet", rain gardens are an attractive way to reduce the impact of stormwater on streams and Lake Erie.
