Brief description of rain garden:
Two tiered rain garden running the length of the driveway capturing stormwater from the roof and watering a beautiful rain garden instead of running off the driveway into the street. This is a unique design for a rain garden, but it turned out looking really nice and is a great solution for many homeowners that have narrow areas running along their driveways.
