Rain Garden Designs

Rain gardens are excellent infrastructures to help capture excess stormwater and improve water quality. They are also aesthetically pleasing. Interested in installing one, but do not know where to begin?  The City of Maplewood, MN has a great website about starting rain gardens and even have some designs for those who are artistically challenged. Click here for more info.

The following are a few designs. Plants are hardy to Zone 4 (perfect for Superior). Designs are meant for small (8’x16’ to 12’x24) gardens, perfect for the city lot.
