Rain Garden Benefits
- Help restore the health of the Elizabeth River, if you have high elevation combined with a spot where water tends to stand.
- Reduce polluted runoff from your yard.

Beautiful and Functional
- Help prevent standing water after storms. Rain gardens make use of native plants and soil to naturally absorb rain back into groundwater systems.
- Rain gardens will help reduce the amount of mosquitoes in your yard by reducing the amount of standing water.
- Improve health of the Elizabeth River. A rain garden will help reduce polluted run-off to the river by naturally capturing and filtering the rain.
