Lawn & Landscaping
The City of Rochester is offering grants for residents and land managers to establish pollinator habitat and water stewardship gardens. A limited number of grants for $1000 or less will be available each year. Eligible expenses include the cost for design, plants, mulch, soil amendments, related materials, and labor.
