Sounds like something we call a soakaway.

There is a little garden in downtown Ocala but they call it a community garden not a rain garden. Looks like the same thing, though. I think they are wonderful!

Okay, I should have clicked on your link first. A rain garden is a very special kind of environmental effort. Again, that's a wonderful thing!

A neat idea!

I had never heard of this but it sounds like a great idea!

There are five houses on our one block long street. All the rain water from this neighborhood runs down the street and across half a block of lawns and gardens. If the rain is hard enough some water might make it to the next street, but I doubt that happens very often. This is a great idea for improving water quality.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog. Always appreciated.

I have seen this kind of thing but didn't have a name for it nor an explanation. It makes a lot of sense. I hope landscapers begin incorporating more rain gardens into our terrain

Very clever idea indeed.
