This partnership project encourages the use of raingardens as a sustainable and natural way to manage floodwater, particularly in urban areas. It will also support the creation of wildlife-friendly, accessible greenspace, reduce pollution, and provide attractive places for people to work and visit. The aim is for 10,000 raingardens to be in use across Scotland by 2030.
