A garden flled with native shrubs and perennial grasses and fowers can both beautify a yard and protect the environment. Water coming of roofs, patios and driveways fows through the rain garden to reduce runof and to flter pollutants, according to Assisant Professor John McMaine of the South Dakota State University Department of Agricultural and Biosysems Engineering. He has been doing research on rain gardens since 2012.
