If you've ever been to wetland areas then you are familiar with the plants that grow there and the wildlife that frequents them, such as butterflies, dragonflies, frogs, hummingbirds, turtles and a whole host of song and marsh birds. Your garden may be too small to lure in Great Blue Herons, but butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, frogs and turtles are a delight to people of all ages. Rain gardens are comprised of a variety of vegetation found growing wild in the area, rather than exotic species, like roses, marigolds, pansies and others. Rain gardens are usually wildflowers, but some may choose to add grasses, sedges, ferns, bushes or trees. The plants in a rain garden are chosen for their ability to uptake and store water and to withstand drought. They are also extremely good at cleaning water of the nutrients and poisons that fill our lawns and gardens. A rain garden captures the run-off from major storms and stops it from flooding our already strained storm drains and sewage systems. So, add a rain garden to your area today with this great mix of 17 perennial wildflowers. The beauty it will bring and the purpose it obtains will amaze you! Note: since the species in this mix are all perennials some will take a while to establish. In the interim, you may want to protect the garden from flooding or too much water. Hand packed with 100% pure, fresh wildflower seed (non-GMO & neonicotinoid/chemical free) Mix of 17 Perennials with long lasting bloom.

How to Build Your Rain Garden

Building a rain garden is a very simple process, you might just get a little dirty and do some digging. First, choose your location. You'll need a space slightly inclined from your water run off (i.e.. roof, spout, drainage points of origin). Make sure it is at least ten feet from your home. Estimating the size of your rain garden is usually done by the type of soil. If you have standard, black dirt, then estimate 1/3 of the sq. ft. of your roof, but if you have sandy soil your garden may be smaller and if you have clay soil it'll need to be a bit larger, however, if you've chosen a low spot in your yard where water collects, size won't matter, just fill the depression. Dig down 6-8 inches in the center of your garden and slope the sides to run water down into the center. Make sure to create a berm on the downhill side to capture the runoff before it gushes into the drains. Simply fill the floor of the garden with the rain garden mix and any other grasses, shrubs etc. that you have chosen. This is one garden that mulching will help stop weeds, hold moisture and spruce up your rain garden. You may also consider digging a shallow channel from your downspout to your rain garden and lining it with river rock to help guide rain where you want it to go.

Voila, your done!
