rain garden progress

New rain garden installation in September 2015 (above) and the same rain garden in June 2016.

We’re always delighted to see progress updates on rain gardens and bayscapes we’ve installed for DC’s RiverSmart Homes grant program. In less than 10 months, small plugs of Penstemon, Coneflowers and Black-eyed Susans have filled in this stormwater-capturing corner garden. Our previous post is about the resilience of young plantings.
