What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rain gardens fill with water during and after storms. The water percolates into the soil and dissipates through a process called evapotranspiration, a combination of evaporation and the release of moisture from plants. Still, it is a good idea to plan for water discharge into an area away from buildings. Seasonal pools like this one are a good solution, and they're a valuable habitat for amphibians and other wildlife. These ponds dry up in the summer, so they don't encourage mosquitoes.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Why Fall Is the Best Time for Planting
Less watering means lower maintenance. If you plant in spring or summer, more often than not you have to dutifully keep up with watering during those first few weeks or months. Constant observation of your new darlings gets tedious as the heat ramps ups. When planting in fall, I water the plants in their pots a few hours before digging so they can soak up what they need, then I stick them in the ground and leave until forever. Now, I’m talking perennials here. For shrubs and trees, it’s good to thoroughly water the soil in the new hole to get it nice and tight around the new roots you’ve teased out from the root ball, and a warm day in January might be perfect for watering if it’s been a dry winter. But I easily plant perennials into early November here in zone 5, in Nebraska (find your zone).

Look for existing low points in your yard at least 10 feet away from property lines and houses, but near the impervious surface that's causing the runoff. The size of your rain garden will depend on local rainfall, the tributary area and the soil type. Poorly draining soils can be amended with mulch, which functions a bit like a giant sponge, holding water where it can be picked up by plants. Rain gardens fill w/water during and after storms. The water percolates into the soil and dissipates thru a process call evapotranspiration, a combination of evaporation and the release of moisture from plants.
