Learn how to build a raingarden with Gully Gardeners

Did you know raingardens are a great way to save water?

Building a raingarden is a simple way to help the environment and the health of our local waterways while providing a self-watering garden for your backyard.

A raingarden is a specially prepared garden designed to receive and filter rain run-off from roofs and hard surfaces such as driveways or paving. You can even create a raingarden in a planter box, positioning it to collect water from a disconnected downpipe or rainwater tank overflow.

Come and meet Danielle Gerente, the Water Sensitive Cities Project Engineer from the Knox City Council and find out how you can build one.
