Join Green Venture on a tour of innovative Hamilton gardens! At this stop, we have a look at some creative solutions for moving water through a landscape, and into a big rain garden with a diverse mix of plants. We created this virtual tour to allow Hamilton residents to learn about types of green infrastructure that is being used by homeowners in their city. Our Catch the RAIN program helps homeowners reduce flooding and improve water quality in the Hamilton Harbour through innovative solutions, such as rain gardens, dry rock swales, and more! Follow along as we visit the amazing yards of these enthusiastic Hamilton homeowners. They discuss what inspired them to implement green infrastructure on their properties, how it’s changed their landscape, and some tips and tricks for those looking to get started in their yards!
