Award in Rain Gardens (Level 2)

Course overview

Our course on rain gardens offers an in-depth exploration of a sustainable landscaping solution designed to manage stormwater runoff effectively. Rain gardens are strategically designed depressions filled with native vegetation and porous soil, enabling them to capture, filter, and absorb rainwater runoff from impervious surfaces like roofs, driveways, and sidewalks.

This course delves into the principles of rain garden design, installation, and maintenance, emphasising the importance of site selection, plant selection, and proper construction techniques.

Through hands-on activities, case studies, and practical demonstrations, this course empowers individuals to implement rain gardens in their communities, contributing to more resilient, sustainable, and beautiful landscapes.
