Save the date to save the Earth. There will be a presentation about rain gardens for homeowners on Thursday, September 22, from 7:30 to 8:30 PM at the Summit Public Library. This event is free.
Toby Horton, Landscape Architect at Rutgers and designer of the Summit City Hall and Summit Library rain gardens, will give a presentation explaining how to create and plant a rain garden this fall. Toby Horton has also designed dozens of rain gardens for the homes of New Jersey residents.
Rain gardens are landscape features that help manage storm water runoff. Water from rooftops is directed into the rain garden where it percolates into the earth, preventing overflow in the storm sewers and providing many other benefits.
