East Amwell Historical Society Garden Tour quite successful! 

The East Amwell Historical Society and Rutgers Nursery teamed up to present a garden tour on Saturday Aug 1. The sold-out bus tour began at the East Amwell-based nursery before heading out to its 60-acres growing farm off Dunkard Church Road.  The tour then continued at several professionally landscaped homes in East Amwell and neighboring Delaware Township.  The weather was perfect, and the group was a-buzz with plant talk!



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Rutgers Landscape & Nursery in Ringoes breaks ground on sustainable rain garden

Rutgers Landscape & Nursery announces the installation of a sustainable rain garden at their nursery location on Route 202 in Ringoes.

The garden will feature wet-tolerant plants adapted to our region, and will be fed rainwater from the shop rooftop and adjacent paved areas. The roof rain water is collected by the gutters, and flows through the downspouts into a rain barrel (which has a spigot so it can be used to water plants!). The water then overflows into a grate drain and finally splashes over stones into the rain garden.

A rain garden is a landscaped planting bed that features a shallow depression, modified soils and wet-tolerant plants to capture, infiltrate and utilize storm water. Using a rain garden in place of a traditional mounded bed results in less irrigation, runoff, wet spots in the lawn, and less stress on overburdened sewers and natural water conveyance systems. As demonstrated at Rutgers Landscape & Nursery, the garden is sited and connected to receive runoff from impervious surfaces like rooftops, driveways, or patios, thus reducing the amount of runoff that would reach other parts of the yard or sensitive natural areas.

The purpose of the recently installed rain garden at Rutgers Landscape & Nursery is to display and demonstrate the workings, design, and the many species of plants that can be used in a rain garden. The display is a collaboration between Rutgers Cooperative Extension and Rutgers Landscape & Nursery (no affiliation). It is a pilot project of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension and the Rutgers Department of Landscape Architecture's effort to help nurseries and installers to encourage homeowners to install rain gardens as beautiful and distinctive landscape features that also have significant environmental benefits.
