Rain Garden Mix

A rain garden is one of the most common and well known ways to incorporate green infrastructure into any landscape! Its main function is to reduce runoff from parking lots, driveways, and roofs.  They also help filter out contaminants in runoff.  The plants we have selected for this mix, are capable of withstanding brief intervals of standing water, tolerate drought, and have deep roots that allow water to effortlessly percolate into the soil.  At the same time, they offer food and shelter to native pollinators and other wildlife.

12 lbs. per acre. $93 per lb. *Mix design and pricing are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of current and future products. Changes to the mix will not affect its function.*
