Winter 2022 Professional Online Course

January 31, 2022 @ 8:00 am - March 7, 2022 @ 11:30 pm


This Professional Rain Gardener Program will certify you to install rain gardens professionally on residential properties. Rain gardens naturally manage stormwater by infiltrating precipitation and allowing it to soak into the ground rather than sending it directly to storm sewers and nearby streams untreated. Experienced instructors will provide customized feedback, which will enable you to design and install rain gardens. Topics will include site assessment, soil analysis, design, construction, plant selection, mulching, and maintenance.

This five-week course is open to landscape professionals and contractors that provide services to Northeast Ohio and will be taken online. Participants in the professional certification track will be required to pass a final exam and either participate in a field day (public rain garden installation) or install a residential rain garden. Graduates will receive a Master Rain Gardener t-shirt, yard sign, and a certificate of completion. Professionals will also have to option to be listed on a public website of Northeast Ohio Professional Master Rain Gardeners that will be maintained by and held on partner websites.

The Professional Certification is geared toward landscape professionals and contractors looking to install rain gardens professionally on residential properties. Your Master Rain Gardener Professional Certification can be used to promote your expertise and as a selling point for your business.

Recorded class webinars can be watched at your convenience with live Q&A sessions every week Fridays at noon!
