Rain garden - The goal is to choose a stone size that will help spread out the water as it meets the rain garden. Another option is to plant a woody, spreading ground cover that can withstand the water inundation. Some examples include creeping barberry (Mahonia repens) or kinnikinnick (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi). If you choose to establish some ground cover, it’s best to fill in any gaps between the young plants with stones. Over time, the plants will grow and spread to cover the smaller stones.

The initial planting and spacing should be based on the plants’ mature spread, giving them room to grow. Avoid placing plants too close together, as you’ll end up with overcrowded plants that require more maintenance because they’ll need to be thinned periodically.
