While rain gardens take a while to build, there are some short-cuts. Here’s a great tip, with two options (one much more environmentally friendly)?
If the grass is dead where you’d like to place your rain garden, digging will be much easier.
- If you are comfortable using Round-Up, you can kill the grass quickly
- Or, you can place black plastic or tarps over the grass. This takes longer, but uses no chemicals.
