Simple steps around your home can have big benefits in your yard and in our region.

On-site stormwater management helps protect water quality and reduce flooding and erosion, but having a comprehensive list of common best practices can be overwhelming. Many local watershed groups provide tips and resources. Here, we’ve listed a few of our favorites to give you quick access to the manuals, worksheets, and diagrams that may simplify your search.

URS offers a helpful brochure, How to create a rain garden in 6 easy steps. You can download it here or check the infographic below.

As with any stormwater-management-related yard improvements, we recommend you check with any local regulations before beginning projects like these to ensure you are aligned with specific requirements your city may have.
