Placing plastic or tarps on grass will kill it, thus making digging easier

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.
