Rain Garden Information


338 Tennis Ave., Ambler, PA 19002
My rain garden is part of the Ambler Borough EAC 100 Rain Garden Project. We piped the water runoff from two back roofs and also the water from the sump pump into the garden. My garden is a "weed" garden filled with native plants such as joe pye weed, butterfly weed and sneezeweed to name a few! The garden works great in collecting water and then draining it slowly and efficiently due to the seven (7) sand wicks installed throughout the garden.
