Fort Wayne's Rain Gardens

A number of Fort Wayne property owners are already installing rain gardens on their properties.  Click on any rain cloud symbol on the map above to find the address of a rain garden near you.  Or you can look at the list of Rain Gardens below.

A rain garden is a landscaped area planted with native plants and flowers that soaks up rainwater.  The garden fills with a few inches of rain water that come off of the roof of a house or building during a storm.  After the storm, the water slowly soaks into the ground instead of running off the land into a storm sewer or waterway.

Compared with a grassed lawn area, a rain garden may allow 30% more water to be absorbed.

Fort Wayne's Goal -- 1,000 Rain Gardens!
