Grass Replacement Classes & Rebate

Grass Replacement Classes & Rebate

West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) is adding an additional dollar to Metropolitan Water District's (MWD) rebate for a total rebate of $3 or more per square foot of grass removed from residential and commercial landscapes. As a member agency of MWD, West Basin service area residents and businesses can apply for MWD's rebate program and receive the extra incentive.

West Basin is hosting five free classes, beginning in Summer 2019, for service area residents and businesses to learn how to transform their landscapes into drought-tolerant gardens and take advantage of the updated MWD rebate program.

             

During the class, residents will learn how to:

·       Remove existing grass

·       Plan a sustainable garden design

·       Prepare a healthy soil for plants

·       Incorporate a water-efficient irrigation system

·       Plant climate-appropriate plants

·       Maintain a new, drought-tolerant landscape
