Rain Garden Design and Management: A Technical Workshop for Landscape Professionals
On September 7, 2013, in Etna (a suburb of Pittsburgh), 40 landscape professionals gathered to learn about the how-to's of installing and maintaining a rain garden. In the afternoon they got to see one being installed before their eyes, and had the opportunity to help out too. You can learn more about the workshop and the garden by clicking on the links below.
