Professional Rain Garden Design and Installer

The Carolina Rain Garden Initiative certifies professional rain garden installers and designers who attend the Clemson Extension Rain Garden for Professionals workshop and demonstrate their experience by submitting a rain garden portfolio.

Note: This certification is intended for residential-scale “pocket” rain gardens and does not include more highly engineered bioretention cells. Although both rain gardens and bioretention cells work to slow storm water runoff and allow for infiltration, bioretention cells are more highly regulated in design and materials. If you would like to become a certified Professional Rain Garden Design and Installer, please contact Kim Counts Morganello, Clemson Extension Water Resources Agent at
