Sponge Gardens are a smaller version of a Rain Garden without the $$ engineering and permitting of the underground piping and can be accomplished by homeowners.

Sponge Gardens are effective in removing up to 90% of nutrients and chemicals and up to 80% of sediments from the rainwater runoff that they receive, improving storm-water quality, which means less fertilizers causing fewer algae blooms in the bay.
