As homeowners and property managers become more aware of regulations related to stormwater management, the need for qualified stormwater BMP installers is growing. Rain gardens, one of the most common installations, are as landscape features that can effectively collect and treat stormwater and reduce localized flooding. Rain gardens can be integrated into the existing landscape as a retrofit or be included in the initial landscaping plan.
