The Beginning of A Rain, Rock Garden

– Posted in: Garden Design

A note from our colleague and guest contributor, Ed Snodgrass:

“I just built a rock garden out of boulders that has a water feature powered by my downspouts. Of course, it normally would only run when it rains. But these downspouts come off my green roof so water drips for days after the rain, thus extending the motion in the garden. I’ll be planting it in early spring. But I’ll send a construction photo along since I know you can imagine it finished. There are two downspouts in the photo”.

As always, Ed is looking for new and creative ways of increasing sustainability in the landscape. I’m looking forward to seeing what the end product looks like and hearing from Ed how efficient it is.

Have any of you been ambitious enough to create your own rain garden? If so, please post some pictures on your blog with a link on GGW.
