Summary
This manual provides homeowners and landscape professionals with the information needed to design and build rain gardens on residential lots. Guidelines presented in this manual can also be used to treat roof runoff at commercial and institutional sites. However, the manual should not be used to design rain gardens for parking lots, busy streets and other heavily used paved areas where stormwater would require pretreatment before entering a rain garden.
