What is your wish for this project?
We wish to create a rain garden on our campus.
How did it go?
Our first job was to amend the soil since it had been covered by asphalt for 55 years. Then we dug the swale and created the mounds for the vegetables. Next we put in the anchor plants and trees. We've started the ground cover but it will take several years for it to spread. We can't wait for it to rain next year so we can see how well our rain garden functions. In the mean time, we will enjoy our new garden.
