NAPERVILLE PROJECT – Front yard rain garden, wildlife bird habitat, no lawn
This side yard is now a beautiful rain garden and wildlife bird habitat, eliminating all lawn. Since it’s in the front yard, hopefully passersby will think about their downspout run-off and need for a lawn. Paths throughout allow access to water spigot, homeowner’s bird feeders & baths, plants, and gate through arbor. We’re adding another rain garden in front. Stay tuned!
A well designed rain garden has carefully chosen plants, keeps water away from the house, considers overflow and grading, and integrates functionally and visually with the rest of the landscape.
