The Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County (EARTH Center) rain garden was installed in order to manage the flooding problem between two of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County buildings.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater from the Ranch House's rooftop and overflow water from the sump pump located in the Ranch House's basement.


Approximately ten Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County and Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program faculty and staff were present for the installation of the rain garden in Spring 2006. Compost for the rain garden was donated by Middlesex County and the native plants for the rain garden were purchased from a nursery.

Plant List:

Blue Flag Iris
Cinnamon Fern
Marsh Mallow
New England Aster
New York Aster
Puple Coneflower
Pussy Willow
Red Osier Dogwood
Rose of Sharon
Soft Rush
Virginia Sweetspire
Winterberry Holly
Wool Grass


The rain garden is maintained by the Master Gardeners of Middlesex County.
