What is a rain garden? A raingarden is designed and planted to capture rainwater so it can penetrate deep into the soil to help protect and restore water quality. This helps to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that would otherwise take pollutants from the air, our yards, and the streets and carry them into lakes and rivers.
