Rain Garden
Front Native Plant Garden

Rick McCormick may be retired, but his work in sustainable gardening is as robust as ever. He is a River Hero Home and Master Gardener in Bon Air, Virginia. His favorite activity along the James River is to walk the variety of trails in the region. He gives love back to the James River by using native plants in his garden that support local wildlife and pollinators. He recently replaced his front foundation plants with native plants and added a small rain garden. He plans to expand other areas of his property with more native plants and rain gardens. Below is a great slideshow on the creation of his rain garden from start to finish!

“Have conversations with your neighbors to build help for the James River’s continued improvement.”
