The University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research developed this App as a resource for homeowners, landscapers, contractors, and others.

The App will guide you through the process of designing, installing, and maintaining a rain garden.

The App includes basic information about what rain gardens are and how they work; guidance on how to design and install them properly; and tips on maintaining your garden. The app includes several short video tutorials to help users with each step of the process.
