    Did you know? Landscaped shorelines help reduce algae in lakes by removing 80% more phosphorus than lawns.

    The more plants we have around our lake, the better.  Plants do wonders for filtering pollution from stormwater before it flows into our waterways. If you live on or near the lake, this is especially important.  By planting a native garden between your yard and the lake, you can have a huge impact. Any size garden will make a difference!

    Landscaping the edge of your property with plants, trees and shrubs can protect local waterways from stormwater pollution while adding privacy, visual interest, and year-round color!

    Benefits of shoreline landscaping:

    • Add color and architectural interest to enhance your view and outdoor living space  
    • Promote privacy while maintaining waterfront access and views 
    • Reduce shoreline erosion 
    • Diffuse loud noises coming from other boats on the water
    • Address drainage and soggy spots
    • Attract butterflies and birds
    • Protect Lake Stevens from problematic algal blooms

    The City of Lake Stevens and Snohomish Conservation District are offering this class and the $250 landscaping rebate to help promote native landscaping in an effort to reduce pollution in Lake Stevens. Together, we can each do our part to protect our lake for years to come!
