How to make a Rain Garden
Benefits of a Rain Garden
Building a rain garden is a simple way to help the environment and the health of our local waterways
Weed matting (used a fertilizer for plants)
Edging wood (optional and if curved, make sure the wood is bendy)
Edging pegs (optional)
Locate the surface that will be best suited for the rain garden. You can do this by looking for places around your home where water pools during heavy rain.
Prep the surface by removing weeds and grass, then dig the area, approximately 10cm deep.
Lay out the weed matting on top of the dirt and make sure you hammer down the weed mating with the pegs to guarantee it doesn't move.
Place the rocks if you would like them in whatever formation you would like.
Create a small cross in the weed matting and underneath dig out a hole that will fit your plants. Massage the end of your plants where the roots end and cover the ends with dirt in the ground so then it can continue to grow.
(optional) Step Six:
Place the edging on the sides and use the edging pegs to keep the edging in place.
