Today’s project photos: When the digging gets tough, the tough get pickaxes!

The Soak up the Rain (SOAK) program had some tough digging at a rain garden installation in Greenland, NH, but it was nothing our fearless leader, Eric Williams, and a pickaxe couldn’t handle!


The result was a truly beautiful rain garden the homeowners love. Just one week after installation, the rain garden was put to the test by one heck of a late summer thundershower and….it performed perfectly!
