Water-Wise Plants Incentives or Rebates


Some water providers, cities, and utility companies offer financial incentives for replacing bluegrass turf with either Xeriscape plants or low water use grass varieties such as buffalo grass. In some cases a utility may offer low water grass varieties at a discounted price. Sometimes referred to as “cash for grass” programs, these incentive programs can make the conversion from turf to Xeriscape easier on your pocketbook.

For information about incentive programs in your area, contact your local water provider. If your utility doesn’t offer this type of incentive program, you can recommend that they consider offering it.
