Learn about site planning, rain garden placement, and size and how a rain garden works with Jillian McCarthy, Stormwater Coordinator, NH Dept of Environmental Services and about plant selection, design and installation from Dr. Cathy Neal, Extension Professor and Specialist in Landscape Horticulture, UNH Cooperative Extension.
