Why install a rain garden?
Rain gardens are a great, low-maintenance alternative to a lawn. They can be shaped and sized to fit your yard, provide habitat for local wildlife and pollinators, recharge groundwater and can assist with drainage issues that you may experience on your property.

The 2021 rain garden rebate program is now closed. Join our mailing list to get involved with 2022 program. 

While waiting for the 2022 program to start take a tour of some local gardens.  Register at www.everett.eventbrite.com  and receive a map of local rain gardens to visit at your convenience. These gardens do all the work in your yard by collecting, absorbing and filtering the rain that runs off your roof. Be inspired while exploring a great alternative to lawn.
