Rain Garden Information


24 Cypress Lane, Berwyn, PA 19312
This rain garden catches run-off from most of the house roof and a driveway, sloping from the street to the garage. The rain garden was sized to capture a 1 inch storm. It is located on a steep slope and is constructed with a high berm. We used an 80/20 mix of topsoil and compost. The plants are shade tolerant. The garden has already functioned well in a greater than 1 inch storm.
