RAIN GARDENS

Rain Garden Installation in Long Island, NY

Storm water run off from developed areas increases flooding, carries pollutants from streets, parking lots and even lawns. A rain garden is a landscaped area planted with wild flowers & other native vegetation that soak up rainwater mainly from the roof of a house or building.  Rain gardens fill with a few inches of water after a storm, and water  slowly filters into the ground rather then running off to a drain. Rain gardens work for us in several ways by increasing the amount of water that filters into the ground, which recharges local aquifers.  When we are able to reduce storm water runoff, rain gardens become a valuable part of changing trends.

Benefits of a Rain Garden

Long Island NY rain garden installationRain gardens are important because as cities grow and replace forest and agricultural  land, storm water run off becomes a problem. A rain garden:

  • Enhances the beauty of yards and neighborhoods
  • Helps protect communities from flooding and drainage problems.
  • Helps protect streams & lakes from pollutants carried by urban storm water such as fertilizers, pesticides, oil and other fluids that leak from cars, numerous harmful substances that wash off roofs and other surfaces
  • Provides a valuable habitat for birds, butterflies and many insects
  • A rain garden allows about 30% more water to soak into the ground
