This was such a helpful presentation! Beautiful work! I live in Dearborn and, recently, some of our neighborhoods flood badly. This is definitely something we should consider. I. hadn’t really paid attention to this concept before seeing your presentation. Thank you!
The presentation is very informative by giving a good overview of the necessity of rain gardens. Has there been any work done to know which parts of the broader city need rain gardens? This information could help commissions planning to find areas that are at risk of flooding in the future. Again, great job, and thanks for the work.
A very informative presentation with great visuals. Has there been an effort to look for public areas that don’t have rain gardens? This information may help commissions looking to reduce flooding in vulnerable areas.
I have the perfect spot in my front yard for this. I just needed the motivation. Thank you!
Rain gardens are so important! Thanks for sharing this information with the community.
Great information, what are some plants that are native to Michigan that work well in rain gardens?
