Need native plants for your rain garden or to add to yur landscape?

Join City Utilities for a Native Plant Sale at Salomon Farm Park on Saturday, May 27, 2017.   Details coming soon....

As part of the City's effort to improve the quality of our three rivers and the streams that feed them, City Utilities encourages home owners, businesses and institutions build rain gardens. We'll show you how!

A rain garden is a landscaped area that holds rain water runoff for a few hours to a few days. Rain gardens are planted with native plants that help the soil soak up more water. These plants may improve the quality of the water that does runoff.
