Putting In A Rain Garden

This month is well on its way to being one of the wettest Mays on record. A rain garden is an intelligent way to put that rainwater to good use. In today’s video from the Building Wisconsin TV series, host Stuart Keith and Karen Sands from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District show how to install a rain garden in your yard. This project features Mid-City Plumbing & Heating disconnecting an older home’s drain tile system which was feeding rainwater into the sewer and directing that water into a sump pit to pump it out into the yard.

  1. Thanks for the video, very educational! I’ve been trying to create something similar in my garden, but the space didn’t allow it, so we went for the classic rainwater gathering tactic of installing rainwater tanks and using that water for the plants in the garden and other outdoor works. It’s a really great way to save money and water for the draught season here in Australia.
