The Palmyra Cove Nature Center rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from a portion of the nature center's roof. To address the water quality issues associated with increased stormwater runoff, demonstration projects like this rain garden are essential.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater runoff from a portion of the nature center's roof via downspout extensions.


The rain garden was installed in September 2010 by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Burlington County, the Palmyra Cove Environmental Education Foundation, and Mark Jendrzejewski of InsideOut Design Studio.

A small backhoe was used to remove a portion of the native soil. PVC pipe extensions were attached to two of the downspouts located on the front of the building. The PVC pipe extensions direct runoff from the roof into the rain garden serving as inlets. Delaware River stone was placed around the PVC pipe inlets to keep them in place and to slow down the water entering the rain garden. A three inch layer of triple shredded hardwood mulch was spread throughout the rain garden. The native plants that were installed in this rain garden were purchased from Pinelands Nursery & Supply.

Plant List:

Cardinal Flower
Joe-pye Weed

This rain garden is maintained by the Palmyra Cove Nature Center.
