Seasonal Maintenance

Seasonal Maintenance


Your rain garden will need different kinds of maintenance each season. Remember, weeding should be done throughout the year!

Spring


  • Cut dead stalks
  • Divide plants if they’re getting too crowded
  • Prune shrubs after they bloom to give good blossoms the following year

Summer


  • Water during dry spells
  • Protect plants against herbivores

Fall


  • Prune shrubs to give them a “bushier” look
  • Replenish mulch
