Raingardens for Homeowners. Saturday, March 31st. 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
Rain gardens, also known as bioretention areas, are attractive landscape features that allow rain water and snow melt to infiltrate into the ground. A layer of mulch and plants intercept water running off streets, driveways, and rooftops, slowing its flow and removing pollutants before the water reaches local streams, the Occoquan River and the Potomac River, drinking water supplies for the region.
The workshop will be held at Fairlington Community Center, 3308 S. Stafford St. Arlington, VA.
