Rain gardens are an excellent way to absorb rainwater runoff and get started with ecological gardening. Join Tyler Arboretum Gardener Bess Trout to learn how to add rain gardens to your landscape where they will be most effective. In the first part of this two-part series you will see examples of rain gardens and discover how to select and prepare a site. In the second half you will learn more about choosing appropriate plant species and have an opportunity to ask all your rain garden and ecological gardening questions. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to create a garden that will bring beauty to your back yard while helping to clean up our local rivers and streams!
