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 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.
Rebate program timeline
The rebate program has an annual timetable based on installing a new rain garden in the fall. We kick off the rebate program with informational workshops in the early part of the year. Learn about the rebate timetable and where local rain gardens are located, view or download our brochure, Rain Gardens (PDF).
