Q. I'd like to create a rain garden. Do you have any information on this topic in your library?
A rain garden is a planted depression that allows rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas like roofs, driveways, walkways, and compacted lawn areas the opportunity to be absorbed.
We have plenty of information on rain gardens. Start with our Rain Garden subject guide. This guide includes books, web sites and videos on planning and planting a rain garden. If you are a PHS member, you may borrow these books, and we'll mail them to you. Anyone can visit the library and use the material. The information in this guide will get you started.
