What inspired you to create your garden?
It's a rain garden, but we've also added another area in our yard with native prairie plants. We chose native plants for their beauty, low maintenance, ability to withstand Iowa's crazy weather, ability to drain stormwater and for attracting pollinators and hummingbirds.
