Check out the new Rain Garden developed by The University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) as a resource for homeowners and contractors. The App leads the user through the proper siting, sizing, construction, planting and maintenance of a rain garden. It includes nifty tools to help the user figure out the proper size of the garden, find out about local soil conditions, get a handle on the price of construction, and customize a plant list that will delight the eye while soaking up stormwater. In addition, there are 6 short video segments explaining various aspects of rain garden care and feeding.
The app is only for iPhones at the moment, but they will have an Android version out soon. Go to this link to download App:
