OSU Rain Garden Demonstrations

Are you planning on landscaping your lawn this spring and looking for a way to incorporate drought tolerant plants and help improve water quality?  Rain gardens and bioretention cells are a great way to add visual interest to your lawn, which can increase your property value; in addition, they can also help improve water quality by filtering out pollutants and even help alleviate downstream flooding by reducing the amount of runoff from your property.  In the video below, Jason Vogel with Oklahoma State University talks about a demonstration project that was installed in a neighborhood in eastern Oklahoma City.
