    A garden designed as a shallow depression to collect water that runs off your roof, driveway and other paved surfaces.

    • Increase the amount of water that filters into the ground and recharges aquifers
    • Protect our community from flooding
    • Protect streams and lakes from pollutants- lawn fertilizers, pesticides, oil and other car fluids
    • Enhance the beauty of our yards and neighborhoods
    • Provide habitat for beneficial insects, butterflies and birds
