Water Smart Landscapes Rebate
The Water Smart Landscapes rebate helps property owners convert water-thirsty grass to xeriscape, a lush yet water-efficient landscape. SNWA will rebate customers $1.50 per square foot of grass removed and replaced with xeriscape with no cap on maximum square footage. Certain restrictions apply to well owners. For more information, including terms and requirements, view the program conditions.
Apply online or call 258-SAVE for a printed application. You also can request a information packet on the program. Before you get started, SNWA will answer your questions and review the lawn areas you're converting. You must participate in a pre-conversion site visit before removing your lawn. Starting without SNWA approval will make your conversion ineligible.
After you upgrade, you'll get $1.50 for every square foot of lawn converted to water-smart landscaping. Rebates for well owners are subject to the availability of special funds and limited to 2,500 square feet per calendar year.
Every square foot of grass replaced with water-smart trees, shrubs and flowers saves an average of 55 gallons of water per year, so you'll also save money on your monthly water bill.
