Make a rain garden
There are lots of ways you can reduce water pollution, but rain gardens may be the most beautiful of them. A rain garden is like a bowl or basin in your yard that captures rainwater from your roof, sidewalks, and driveways, and allows it to soak into the soil instead of polluting local watersheds as stormwater runoff. As an added bonus, since rain gardens are planted with an assortment of native plants, they make an attractive, low-maintenance addition to your yard.
