Ready to tackle some spring landscaping projects? Consider installing plants and projects that help naturally treat rain runoff and are eligible for reimbursement through Lenexa's Cost Share Program.

Through this program, funded by a grant from Johnson County Stormwater Management and matching city dollars, we will reimburse you up to 75 percent of your costs for eligible items related to:

  • Rain barrels

  • Native plants

  • Rain gardens

  • NEW: Native trees

  • NEW: Cisterns

  • NEW: Permeable pavers

Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The maximum reimbursement is $110 per rain barrel and $1,500 for rain gardens, native plantings, cisterns and pavers.

We've streamlined our online application process for 2018. You can also submit your application and receipts by email, mail or in person.
