Landscape Transformation Rebate

Receive $1.00 per square foot for incorporating water-saving plants, rainwater capture, and efficient irrigation systems in your drought-tolerant landscape.

Understanding the New Program

The new Landscape Transformation Program is different from our Turf Removal Program and comes with new eligibility and program guidelines. Please make sure you understand the program before embarking upon your landscape transformation.

Please review the Landscape Transformation Program Fact Sheets for a quick overview of the new program:

The program requires customers to incorporate a rain water capture element in their new landscapes. To learn more about this new "watershed wise" approach, and how to implement basic rain garden design concepts into your yard, we encourage you to attend our Watershed Wise Landscaping Workshops. Visit our Events page to learn more.
