Here at Sound Native Plants, we believe in reducing our impact wherever we can. One addition we have made is a demonstration rain garden near our potting station. This garden (pictured to the left) captures all the water runoff produced after watering in thousands of freshly potted plants every year. This garden then captures that water and helps to filter it safely back into the ground. Besides being functional, rain gardens can be a great addition to landscaping and quite beautiful. Check out our information sheet on rain garden designs for more on building your own.
