Pollinator Habitats & Rain Gardens

A healthy garden is full of life, and pollinators like butterflies, bees, birds (and others) play a crucial role in keeping our flowers blooming and reproducing, and our food crops growing. As more and more feeding and nesting area is lost to development, it is even more crucial that we make our backyards pollinator friendly habitats.

Rain Gardens are a beautiful way to deal with stormwater runoff. They collect rainwater runoff from roofs and other hard surfaces, filter out pollutants and allow the water to percolate back into the ground instead of flowing, untreated into storm drains and local waterways.
