Guide for small scale rain gardens with amended soils for plant establishment.
This manual covers installation of existing soil rain gardens. These are rain gardens whose original soils have been amended solely for healthy plant establishment. This is countered by the engineered rain garden whose existing soils have been replaced or heavily amended with a specified soil mix to a depth greater than 1 foot. With existing soil rain gardens landscapers look at rain gardens as landscaping with rain. (2014) Written by Kevin Hebert, Kevin’s Rain Gardens for the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association.
