Are you ready to take storm water management on your property to the next level, but not quite sure what to tackle? Here’s a simple idea for how to divert water flowing on your property – in this case your driveway – into a rain garden to slowly absorb the water into the groundwater table (as opposed to into the municipal treatment or storm water system).

A small rain garden can capture driveway runoff in elegant fashion.

The best way to position your mini rain garden properly is to go outside the next time it rains and see where your water is flowing. We found this article super helpful in describing how to identify the best spot for a rain garden. Good job on taking steps to manage stormwater on your property!
