Eight rain gardens have been planted as of this morning in the Brook Run neighborhood rain garden project. Three to five more rain gardens are slated to be planted today, and the landscapers are working tirelessly in the scorching heat. Residents will need to water the rain gardens to help them get established and offset the rapid water loss with the warm weather. All gardens should be finished this week, and the next step is to disconnect the downspouts into the gardens. Fortunately, this step can be completed regardless of weather.
