Raingardens are landscape features that help improve the quality of nearby waterbodies. They are constructed in a location where water collects and can not only beatify the landscape, but also help filter out pollutants that runoff may have been picked up along the way.

Cover crops consist of grasses, legumes, forbs or other herbaceous plants seeded either before or after harvest of the primary crop. Cover crops reduce soil erosion and improve the soil's physical and biological properties. Healthy soil yields less runoff, improves nutrient and water utilization by crops.

Shoreline protection is used to stabilize and protect shorelines from erosion. In many cases, shoreline protection practices will also benefit water quality by eliminating direct source of sediment.
