Turf removal rebates now being offered.
Turf replacement rebates are currently offered through the San Diego County Water Authority's (SDCWA's) San Diego Sustainable Landscapes Program, which is the go-to resource to assist San Diego County residents in adopting sustainable landscaping best practices through education and training, technical assistance, landscaping materials and financial incentives. For qualified applicants, incentives will provide a reimbursement of $1.75 per square foot to replace water-intensive turf grass with landscaping that provides an array of environmental benefits.
Residents in San Diego County are now also eligible for the Metropolitan Water District’s (MWD's) Landscape Transformation Program. For residents, MWD is offering $1 and the Water Authority will add $1.75 per square foot for a total of $2.75 for qualifying projects. Businesses are eligible for $1 per square foot.
*For both programs, funding is limited and participants must comply with all program requirements to be eligible.
