Rain Garden "A How To Guide" downloadable publication
http://www.millcreekwatershed.org/rain-gardens.html

Click on the book cover and you will be able to download the entire guide in pdf format.

I've seen many rain garden how tos. This is one of the best. The plant suggestions are right on the money for gardeners in the Southwest Ohio and Tri-State Region.

There are other links provided for other areas at the above site. Wild Ones provides information on rain gardens for clay sites-
http://www.for-wild.org/download/rainclay/rainclay.html

Please take a look around. A plethora of practical information for homeowners.

The above pdf is also available from here-
http://www.environmentaleducationohio.org/links.html

If you have ever created a rain garden, please take a moment to review their guide to offer comments to others who might be teetering to try one.

I've not run into that site. I'm creating a new rain garden. The plant suggestions were nice. I will try to take photos when I do mine this year. That's a good idea to download the book so we don't have to find this thread.
