Once your Rain Garden is planted and ready it is time to enjoy the multiple benefits it provides to your property and the environment, but just like with any other garden it is important to take care of it.
Rain Garden Maintenance should be pretty simple if the garden is designed correctly and the adequate plants are selected (native plants once established do not need extra watering or too much care).
To keep its beauty and functionality over the years it is important to consider a few important details like:
- keeping a thick layer of mulch,
- remove weeds,
- make sure that the inlet and outlet are free of debris,
- water during the first season so the plants’ root system gets established, or in drought or heat periods,
- do not use any type of fertilizer
