EVERETT, WA – The City of Everett is offering rebates of up to $2,500 to Everett residents who install approved rain gardens on their property. This is the fifth year of the program, which helps manage stormwater runoff throughout the city.

“Rain gardens are great alternative for homeowners who have problems managing stormwater runoff on their property,” said Apryl Hynes, the City rain garden rebate specialist. “The rebate offers a fantastic additional incentive and I hope people will attend of the workshops to learn more about the program.”

More about rain gardens

Rain gardens are shallow depressions landscaped with soil and plants that soak up stormwater runoff—preventing flooding, reducing lawn area and filtering pollution. The rebate program targets homeowners in flood-prone areas of the city, but is open to all Everett residents.
