This Old House Magazine

This Old House magazine writer Jeanne Huber, their staff and Rain Dog Designs spent months detailing elements of clustered rain garden projects at homes along 8th Ave NW and 18th St SW in Puyallup, WA.  The September 2011 edition establishes This Old House as the first of the traditional home improvement magazines to give extensive rain garden coverage and describe home landscaping as a stormwater management tool.
