Friday Film:: Rain gardening – A series of rain gardens
This week’s Friday Film features a look at a series of rain gardens designed to capture water from a roof. This video is presented by the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust as part of their ‘Step by Step Rain Gardens‘ series. In this installed garden, the rain falls down the downspout, across into a raised, circular planter filled with plants tolerant of heavy water but also summer drought. If the storm is too much for the single garden, it overflows into a series of other gardens preventing water from reaching the storm drains.
Be sure to view the other videos in their rain garden series as well; Step by Step Rain Gardens.
