Anchorage rain garden

I’ve been reading about rain gardens in the muni and made note of ones nearby to visit with the boys. Then one night at soccer at the Boys and Girls Club I realized I was looking at the raw materials for one. It was finished last night and looks gorgeous! It collects the run off from the playground area.

  1. Oh, I want to do that! With only a few rains per year, we desperately need to preserve rainwater in So. Cal. I am trying to impress upon my neighbors (to no avail, yet) to put in permeable pavers when they redo their driveways. Otherwise, it goes straight to the storm drain and right out to the ocean. I have a lot I want to learn about and do in the garden.
