Not sure how we heard about this program, but we signed up last year for the DC Department of Energy’s RiverSmart program and in December we had a site visit.

Part of DDOE, the DC-wide RiverSmart program offers incentives to homeowners interested in reducing stormwater runoff from their properties. For our property, the viable options were bayscaping and shade tree. Wish we had enough space for a rain garden.

We had a visit today from Casey Trees – we picked out our shade tree (amelanchier laevis) and decided on placement (NW corner of our plot).

Mid-April is serviceberry planting time here on Monroe St.
