Rain Garden Information


19 Sunset Road, Newark, DE 19711
My rain garden can accommodate all of the water from the downspout that drains the front half of my house. When I moved here, there was a channel in the grass from the downspout to the sidewalk. This is no longer the case because this rain garden was designed to manage the stormwater onsite. We have removed the grass, improved the permeability of the soil, and used a variety of plants.
