Location: Cold Stream lake path, Lake Linganore, New Market MD
Type of Buffer: Lakeside Buffer
Submitted by: Erin Johnson
This was planted as a demonstration garden on a steep slope to educate the community on how to plant native shrubs, grasses, and perennials to reduce runoff going into the lake.
Many lots in Linganore have steep slopes sending runoff into the lakes, degrading water quality. This garden is meant to encourage homeowners to do this on their land and to participate in the Waterside Buffer Rebate program offered in this community.
