New Turf Replacement Program rebates are available to replace existing turf with sustainable landscape designs that incorporate water-saving plants, technology, irrigation systems and other improvements. Rebates offered are at $2/square foot to both residential and commercial customers on a first come-first serve basis until funds are depleted for the year. The maximum allowed turf replacement for residential is 5000 square feet, and for commercial it is 50,000 square feet. You can apply for the program at http://socalwatersmart.com (make sure to choose residential or commercial appropriately), view great how-to videos to get you started, and get detailed instructions on additional requirements and the application process. Please note that approval of the application is required before you start your project!
