CALIFORNIA TURF REBATES
Californians, it's time to Switch from that Water-Hogging Grass to Drought Tolerant Landscaping.
Real Grass is one of the most water-intensive plants in your landscape. Its high water use and frequent maintenance make it a time-consuming and expensive yard option. In fact, the average residential customer spends about 60% of their water on outdoor irrigation. By changing turf to a California Friendly yard of drought tolerant plants and/or Synthetic Lawn you can save water and money.
To help with turf removal projects, rebates are available for $2.00 OR MORE PER SQUARE FOOT of turf removed. This increased turf removal rebate is being provided in response to Governor Edmund G Brown Jr.’s emergency drought declaration.
Who is eligible for a rebate?
To be eligible for a rebate, customers must:
1. Have grass in the proposed project area
2. Install a new landscape that meets the terms and conditions for their city. All projects must:
