City of Everett Brings Back ‘Rain Garden’ Rebate – up to $2,500

If you’re tired of mowing the lawn, this may be the option for you. While they can be time-intensive to install (if you want cash back from the city, that is) Rain Gardens are considered low maintenance alternatives to traditional landscaping.

“Rain gardens are defined as shallow, landscaped depressions with soil and plants that soak up and filter stormwater runoff.”

From the City of Everett:

Rain gardens can be shaped and sized to fit your yard, provide habitat for local wildlife and pollinators, recharge groundwater and can assist with some drainage issues that you may experience on your property.”

“The rebate program targets homes in flood-prone areas of Everett, but rebates are available to all qualifying Everett residents.”

The City of Everett continues to offer $2,500 rebates to qualified homeowners who install approved rain gardens. Rain gardens are an integral part of the City’s “Let it Rain” program that promotes reducing stormwater runoff, flooding and surface water pollution.

“Rain gardens are a wonderful alternative for homeowners who have had issues with stormwater runoff,” said Apryl Hynes, public works program coordinator. “They can be customized to create a beautiful addition to your yard, while helping to protect the local environment.”

Want to install a rain garden in your yard? Attend a one-hour workshop to learn about the program and request a site assessment of your property. Workshops are free and no registration is required:

Tuesday, March 6, 6:30 p.m., Everett Public Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave.

Saturday, March 17, 10 a.m., Everett Public Works, 3200 Cedar St.

Thursday, March 22, 7 p.m., Eisenhower Middle School, 10200 25th Ave. SE
