Anatomy of a Rain Garden
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.

Learn about our rebate program
Are you an Everett resident interested in installing a rain garden? The City of Everett offers up to a $2,500 rebate to homeowners who volunteer to install an approved rain garden. Each rain garden is unique and project costs vary from garden to garden. The rebate may not cover 100% of the installation cost.
