StormWorks rain gardens are designed to capture rainwater runoff and keep it from entering your local sewage system. We plant a shallow area near your downspout, driveway or sump pump with deep-rooted native plants and grasses, whose roots “hold on” to the water. At first glance, a rain garden looks like any attractive, everyday garden. It attracts birds and butterflies and can be incorporated into a variety of landscapes and yard designs. But beneath the surface, a number of things are occurring that mimic the water containment processes of a healthy forest. Through the use of specially selected plants and soil compounds, stormwater is cleaned and reduced in volume to minimize runoff into your friendly, neighborhood overtaxed sewage system. In other words, it works…beautifully!
