‘Rain Gardens’ are cool. Everyone wants one. Why not? Catching water runoff from the road and roof in a pretty swale protects our streams, lakes, bays and wetlands and solves drainage problems around our homes.

Here’s a link to Washington State University’s very informative page. http://raingarden.wsu.edu

This Poulsbo Rain Garden installed in the Spring of 2011 will keep driveway runoff out of the garage and protect the drain field this coming ‘La Nina’ winter.

Kitsap County Surface and Stormwater Management Program is offering $500 incentives for the homeowner! Contact these really helpful folks at 360.337.5777.

Planting scheme by the homeowner. Very nice!
