The Iacobucci team is onsite today building our rain garden! What a lovely day :)
What exactly is a Rain Garden and why are they important?
A rain garden is a garden in a shallow depression made to naturally gather and filter rainwater —designed to temporarily collect stormwater runoff from roofs, driveways, walkways, patios, and lawns. Once the water is collected, it percolates down into the soil and is absorbed by trees, shrubs, and other plants — filtering water pollutants such as pesticides and fertilizers. Rain gardens are also a natural habitat for butterflies, birds, and insects.
