How to Apply for a RainScapes Project


Whether you are new to RainScapes or ready to get started with your application, it is helpful to read through our step-by-step application guide.  It will help make the process run smoother and easier. 


Application Process

Step 1: Choose a Project and Apply



Step 2: Get approval and install your project

  • A RainScapes planner will contact you to schedule an on-site visit

    • Exception: Rain barrels applications do not require a site visit. 

  • During the site visit, your planner will help you determine whether the project that you chose is best suited for your property.

  • NOTE: Before a rain garden, conservation landscaping, or green roof can be approved, you must submit a scaled planting plan and plant list for staff review. 

  • When your project is accepted for the RainScapes Rewards Rebate program, a Planner will email you a Property Owner Agreement (POA). Click the link in the email to electronically sign the POA. 

  • Now you may install your project!  


Step 3: Finish and Get Your Rebate

  • When your project is complete, contact your RainScapes planner to schedule a final inspection. 

  • Submit copies of project receipts (via mail, email or in person during your final inspection).

  • After passing the final inspection, you will receive a rebate check in 4-6 weeks.
