What is a Rain Garden?

A rain garden is a man-made depression on the ground that is used as a landscape tool to improve water quality. The rain garden forms a bioretention area by collecting water runoff, storing it, permitting it to be filtered by the media and absorbing any pollutants by the growing plants.
