Tip for leveling an area for a rain garden

Rain gardens should be created once the ground has been made level.

Here’s how to level the space:

  • First, dig out the area to the right depth.  Then lay a long 2×4 across the area, with a carpenters level on top of the 2×4.  When you find low spots, fill them with dirt.
  • Keep moving the 2×4 aqround, filling in the low spots.  Rake smooth afterwards.
