I have heard of rain gardens, but since I have limited gardening space, I'm kind of leaning towards getting a couple of rain barrels to capture runoff and use to irrigate,

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.
Here's another good resource on rain gardens:

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.
Robins Nesting Place - Rain Gardens
On her blog she shares DETAILED information about Rain Gardens. Be sure to THANK her for the info.
IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!
