2016 Raingarden Program

Raingardens are beautiful and environmentally significant landscaping features. For the third time, Audubon Neighborhood Association is partnering with Metro Blooms to educate Audubon property owners about the benefits of raingardens and help them install their own raingarden!

Audubon property owners are eligible to participate in this program to beautify the neighborhood, create native habitat, and manage stormwater runoff on their property. Up to 15 properties in Audubon will receive an onsite consultation and raingarden design. The consultation includes identifying runoff conditions on your property, taking measurements, determining the appropriate size for your raingarden, and selecting plants.

Property owners are urged to register as soon as possible as consultations will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. The raingardens will be constructed by Metro Blooms and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota during the month of August. You can download an application form from ANA (pdf).

Project participants will be financially responsible for the purchase of the plants and mulch, and the cost of taking the sod and soil off site, if necessary.  ANA will cover the garden excavation costs to minimize cost for the property owner. ANA's partners in this program, Metro Blooms and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota, will excavate the gardens and place the mulch. Metro Blooms will order the plants, and property owners will then be responsible for the planting of the garden.

Metro Blooms will also provide supplemental information related to the maintenance of the new raingardens.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact ANA at 612-788-8790 or mail@audubonneighborhood.org or Metro Blooms at laura@metroblooms.org.
