The Central Ohio Rain Garden Initiative is pleased overall with the progress of the Brook Run rain garden installations, however wet weather has been holding up the process. The sod has been removed from the oulined shapes of each of the garden spots, but that soil needs to be tilled up to help offset compaction and give the plants’ roots a little help in getting established. Soil generally should not be worked when too wet, so there has been a slight delay in the installations. Hopefully this weekend will prove to be drier, then the gardens can be tilled and planted. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for dry weather then  rain!
