A great rain garden guide....and it's free!

Nothing attracts Americans' attention as quickly as the phrases "free" and "all you can eat," but this blog isn't about Hometown Buffet. It's about information that can help you prevent runoff and non-point-source pollution on your clients' properties.

You can pay $4.95 for the Oregon Rain Garden Guide or you can download a pdf version of by accessing That version is free.

And, don't fret because the title of the rain garden pub says "Oregon." The 44-page Guide contains great information about designing and installing rain gardens that would be helpful, regardless of where you live or offer services.

Oh, by the way, did I mention that the downloadable version produced by Oregon Sea Grant at Oregon State University is free. Yes, FREE! — Ron Hall

Thanks for posting this note about the neat Rain Garden guide.

Good Nature's fine art of Rain Garden graces the cover of the manual. Rob Emmanuel and Oregon Seagrant did a fine job putting this "how to" manual together. And this is the season for rain gardens.

You can see the original poster art by John C. Pitcher @
