Gardens can serve many purposes beyond being beautiful. One example, a rain garden, can help to divert and absorb excess rainfall. Opting for a Maryland rain garden installation will not only help to protect your property from flooding, but provide a unique focal point to your yard’s landscaping.
A Gorgeous Design With a Hidden Feature
A rain garden is a garden built with a purpose. It helps your yard funnel rainfall into a specific area of your yard to be dissipated into the groundwater. Rain gardens are ideal for yards which have drainage issues or for areas which receive excess rain.
Rain gardens are created from the ground up. The first step is ensuring the ground has enough drainage, sometimes through soil condition and adding gravel or rock. Proper drainage is crucial to all the plants rooted above as well as the look of the rain garden as a whole.
With the soil amended, your Maryland garden designer then selects appropriate plants which can handle this unique environment. This knowledge, coupled with the need to layout the garden in an aesthetically pleasing way only comes from years of experience.
