Event description

Description

Join University of Illinois Extension Horticulture Educator Candice Hart to learn the concepts and construction techniques of a successful rain garden and the plants that work best in rain gardens.

Instead of allowing water to quickly drain away from your landscape, you can create a place that will allow the water to drain back into the ground, away from the house. In addition, by planting the site to native perennial plants, it can add an aesthetically pleasing landscape to the yard. We’ll also take a walk through the rain garden demonstration plot at Allerton to see how it all works.

Cost: $10/person, pre-registration required.

Location: Park in the Visitor Center lot and meet inside the Visitor Center.
