Franklin Residential Rain Garden Project
Welcome to Franklin's Residential Rain Garden Project. This website connects you with resources to build a rain garden in your own home that will help soak up the rain and prevent stormwater runoff from your property. The Residential Rain Garden Project is part of a larger commitment by the Town of Franklin to reduce stormwater runoff to the Charles River and associated pollution.
What is a Rain Garden?
A rain garden is designed to collect and treat rainwater running off from impervious surfaces including driveways, rooftops, and streets using soil and plant media. Rain gardens are planted with perennials and grasses that can withstand both wet and dry conditions.
