Obviously missed your posts.

Have you two added rain gardens yet, or are still considering?
Indeed, I did. Mine is probably 25' x 8-10', has three bushes and 100 plug plants in it and still looks very sparse. But I know in a year or two it will fill out a lot. Nothing but the bushes (chokeberry) has bloomed yet. During one serious rain event, it did overflow, otherwise it's held the water. I think in a year or two I will have a bit of re-leveling to do after things settle.

Very nice, with as much rain as we have been getting we could have one. But not on my list at this time.
