Learn how to collect rain to reuse in your front or backyard. Water conservation experts Cleo Woelfle-Erskine and Apryl Uncapher will talk about their new book, Creating Rain Gardens, covering everything from rain barrels to simple living roofs, permeable patios, and other low-tech affordable ways to save water in the garden. The authors walk homeowners through the process, with step-by-step instructions for designing and building swales, French drains, rain gardens, and ephemeral ponds—the building blocks of rain-catching gardens. From soil preparation, planting, troubleshooting, and maintenance, to selecting palettes of water-loving plants that provide four-season interest and a habitat for wildlife, Creating Rain Gardens covers everything a gardener needs to create a beautiful rain garden at home.
