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.

  1. Rain garden workshop dates

Out of an abundance of caution and to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the City of Everett is cancelling the remaining rain garden rebate workshops and plans to reschedule in the near future. Please check back here soon for updates.

Though there has been a disruption to these informational workshops, the 2020 rebate program will continue. For questions about the rebate program, contact Apryl Hynes, Public Information & Education Specialist, email or 425-257-8992.
