Mulch annually.

Mulching is an important part of rain garden maintenance. Mulch keeps the soil moist, allowing for easy infiltration of rain water.

Mulching also protects plants and reduces weed growth. Each spring, rain gardens should be re-mulched with 2-3 inches of hardwood mulch.

Weed, prune, and water your garden, especially during plant establishment.

Depending on the selected garden design, there will be varying degrees of weeding and pruning involved. It is important to weed regularly during plant establishment, as newly planted species may have a tough time competing with weeds. Once plants become established, less weeding will be required.
