Plant it Wild to host discussion on creating a rain garden

FRANKFORT — Carolyn Thayer, landscape designer and owner of Designs in Bloom, will offer a presentation on creating a rain garden.

The presentation will be from 7-9 p.m. on Sept. 18 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Managing all run off on-site is the best way to protect surface water and recharge the groundwater. Using Michigan native plants with their deep roots to process water is a simple and beautiful solution.

The program will cover how to create a rain garden on a residential property fed by roof runoff, hard surface run off, or foot-washing/outdoor shower runoff.
