Downspout Redirection & Rain Gardens

Downspouts are getting more challenging to place on urban lots which are getting smaller and smaller.

Rain gardens are shallow depressions which allow rain to soak in instead of running off your lot.

Redirecting your downspout into a rain garden:

  • harvests water for plants planted in the rain garden
  • reduces the amount of sediment, nutrients and other pollutants reaching our water bodies

Rain gardens are a simple measure that can make a world of difference.
