Re: Re: Crazy weather/ flooding


Bonnie,

Rain Gardens are areas where water is collected in amended soil, and the
area is planted with things that tolerate both wet and dry, like Iris
pseudacorus, Monarda, Daylilies, Clethra, Colocasia (at least in our area-
your plant list would probably be very different). Depending on the size of
the rain garden, plantings can get very elaborate, with consideration given
to plants that will go on the berm, on the sides, and in the "pit"

There's more on the web at www.raingardens.org and a lot of extension
websites.

Is the Extension Service  pushing " Rain Gardens" in your area?  They are
here, to help limit the problem you mentioned. It's amazing how much water
even a small one will hold and then release slowly into the landscape.
