Tennessee receives a lot of rainfall, which can create many benefits in your home landscape if properly leveraged. Rain gardens are planted depressions in the landscape designed to catch and soak in rainwater runoff and planted with species that match the soil moisture conditions present. Many native Tennessee plants that are commonly found along streambanks or in wetlands will thrive in rain gardens. This publication lists native plants and their characteristics for rain gardens in Tennessee.
