A Lake County Master Gardener uses his personal experience to explain how to plan, install, and maintain your rain garden. Rain gardens accomplish more than beautifying your property. They prevent pollutants from reaching your water source and nourish pollinators. Learn if one makes sense on your grounds.
Two more tips for any gardeners out there:
- Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? Check out our collection the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.
