The Benefits of a Rain Garden

Lower Your Water Bills

Use less city water and get stormwater fee reductions each month.

Enhance your Ecosystem

Rain gardens help you develop richer soil and make room for pollinators.

Prevent Property Damage

Collecting rain water off your roof can prevent your property from flooding and creating damage.

“We invite our neighbors over after a storm to see it working! With an incentive from the Bay Alliance it only costs us $2000 to install our rain garden”.

We were aware that the DC government is supportive of creating incentives, and we went through that process, but the Rainplan was another piece of it and even better with the help and support of the team to do all the steps”.
