Summary
"The 'rain garden' is a new and exciting concept that combines environmental benefits with aesthetic considerations to bring purpose and individuality to a garden or landscape. In this authoritative work, we see how rain gardens follow the principles of the natural water cycle by using the landscape to slow down the rate at which water is lost to the public drainage system. This is achieved by employing a range of techniques such as increasing areas of planting, replacing surfaces that are traditionally 'hard landscaped' with permeable alternatives, and even replacing conventional drainpipes with rain chains that divert rainwater from the gutter directly into the ground." "Drawing on examples from around the world, each feature is described, explained and illustrated using photographs and sketches. Finally, the book provides a unique directory of plants indicating their suitability for different rain garden situations. Rain gardens are good for wildlife, encourage biodiversity provide visual and sensory pleasure and, above all, are sustainable in a changing climate."--BOOK JACKET
