Thanks for this info Bren--very timely for me as I just started digging a rain garden to take some of the runoff from our barn roof. Sediment is the biggest polluter of many of our streams in the U.S. and what landowners do with their property makes a huge difference.
Has anyone ever heard of a Rain Garden? I had no idea these existed. Funny thing is, Hubby and I were just looking out our bedroom window noticing there was a water drain off problem due to the new addition we put on to our house a year ago. We have the gutters in and he did much grading to the landscaping in that area and we are still getting some serious puddles up against my bird bath garden. This morning I came across this blog on one of my favorite garden blogs I follow.
