About this Talk
Rain gardens are the ultimate multi-function garden, boasting an ability to provide aesthetic improvement, privacy screening, wildlife habitat, and even improve nearby water quality and clarity. So how can you create your own?
In this month’s ONLINE Yahara Lakes 101 talk, Paul Skawinski from the Extension Lakes program at UW-Stevens Point will teach us what a rain garden is, what it isn’t, and how to start adding one to your landscape. Creating a rain garden is not difficult, but considering a few helpful tips will get you on your way to a beautiful and functional rain garden in less time, with less effort.
