Build a Rain Garden to Ward Off Heavy Rainfall

With these instructions from This Old House, it’s easy to design your garden with the impact of rain on your property in mind. With the video above, you can easily plan your own rain garden.

If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, this is a great way to keep your yard from flooding by building a garden that helps drain excess water directly into the ground. You will need to consider placement relative to the rainwater source – for example, a gutter going down from the roof gutters.

If you live in an area where there is no heavy rain, consider setting up a collection container so you can avoid using rainwater.
