Rain garden

The rain garden retains storm water runoff and soil nutrients while it feeds insects and birds.

Nature has always been multitasking!

As an open field reverts to a forest, it goes through a succession of stages, each featuring suitable plants with their associated insects, birds and other animals. It doesn’t matter whether the land is dry or wet or even infertile, nature has beautiful plants to fix that. And they usually carry on more than one important ecological task at once.
