Constructing a Rain Garden

We wanted our rain garden to drain two downspouts that drained about 890 square feet of roof area. The rain garden needs to be 890 divided by 3 or about 300 square feet.

We drew a plan,and picked a spot (about 25' from the downspout) and started digging...

notice how we picked the greenest spot in the lawn to dig up?
