I will admit to also being intrigued by gardens designed to filter water. They put one in at a new Lake Resource center that opens this fall.

I'll have to take a look.

They're really cool and can be beautiful as well as functional. There are deepwater versions that use floating plants such as water hyacinth (which I've grown for fun). There are marsh versions with shallow water that run kind of a maze structure. Then there are gravelbed versions where the water is all kept below the surface. They all use different structures and plants.

Here's one example:

Bloomington has a park which acts as a large, long kidney garden for rain-storm overflow.
