Rain Gardens

Rain gardens are a great way to absorb excess rain water, while adding curbside appeal to your home. For detailed guidance and advice on how to make your own, visit the home and garden section of your local home improvement store, or contact the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County.

Tips for Your Rain Garden

  • Smaller rain gardens are easier to manage. Think about placing several smaller gardens throughout your lawn.
  • Begin planting from the inside, this prevents stepping or kneeling on the outside greenery.
  • Consult a professional! Plant selection, garden size, and the location of your rain garden can vary greatly depending on the layout of your yard.
  • See other rain gardens from throughout New York State.
