Richland Soil and Water

rain gardenRain gardens are created to take advantage of water run-off from rooftops and driveways by diverting it into a shallow depression that is planted with native plants and shrubs. These gardens capture and filter storm water before it flows into storm sewers and into our creeks and rivers. Native plants provide beauty to the landscape as well as food and shelter for local birds, butterflies and other animals.
