I'm looking for a landscape contractor (landscape architect or designer) that is RainWise certified with the city to install a rain garden in my yard. Any recommendations to help me sift through the approx. 25 listed on the city website? Thank you!
Rainwise is a city sponsored program. They contract with lots of companies who will come out and measure the size of each roof section and estimate how much water will go from your roof to the downspouts that you tie into the cisterns. I have 3 - 650 gallon. If the size, pitch of your roof ties into rain gutters they will determine how many gallons of water you can save. If it meets some minimum threshold, city pays for pretty much everything. You have to sign docs that you won’t disengage. We had to tie more roof into ours to qualify. City didn’t pay for that bit. So subcontractor addd some gutters to tie out stand alone garage to the house.
