Rain gardens are one way of reducing and managing stormwater runoff. When planning one, contact your local nursery and explain what conditions the plants will have to deal with. Wherever possible, choose indigenous species.
See an earlier rain garden post that contains a written explanation of how to build a rain garden. If rain gardens are not suitable for your particular situation, you can still help to reduce stormwater runoff by harvesting rainwater.
