Update SoCal Rebates for Artificial Grass at $1 Per SF for Some Agencies

Southern California Rebate Programs for Synthetic Turf Curtailed by Metropolitan Water …

The $0.30 Per SF rebate (offered for many years through-out the southern part of the state) for the use of artificial grass/synthetic turf has been suspended indefinitely for Southern Californian water users!

However – SEVERAL of the water agencies have approved a better deal!

The following is from the SoCal Water Smart Website and I have called today and talked with their program director to insure details:

LADWP – Los Angeles Water and Power AND Upper San Gabriel Water Agencies are the ONLY groups offering to approve of rebates at $1 per SF for the removal of real grass and the approved replacement with synthetic turf. Others will only approve a rebate when drought-resistant plants or mulches are used.

THIS PROGRAM NEEDS PRE-APPROVAL and funds are limited!

LADWP – Maximum rebate allowed = $2000

Upper San Gabriel Retail Agencies* maximum rebate allowed = $3000

Those that are covered by both the Golden State and Upper San Gabriel retail agencies may have a maximum of $4500 rebate available

Note: Turf removal reservations are currently available only for customers of the following water providers:

  1. Golden State Water Company in Three Valleys Municipal Water District (cities of Claremont, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and the area of Charter Oak)
  2. Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP)
  3. Pasadena Water and Power
  4. Retail agencies within the Upper San Gabriel Valley Water District (*see bottom of page for list of eligible providers)

Turf grass is one of the most water-intensive plants in your landscape. Its high water and frequent maintenance needs make it a time-consuming, expensive option.

If you choose to remove some of your irrigated turf grass to reduce your outdoor water use, you can receive $1 or more per square foot of removed turf to reward you for doing your part to save water in Southern California!

In order to be eligible for a rebate, the converted area must meet minimum requirements, including:

  • Converted areas may not include any live turf and must be permeable to air and water. Weed barriers and hardscape must be permeable as well.
  • Exposed soil must be covered with a 2-3” layer to prevent erosion.
  • No invasive plants are used.

Consider planting a California Friendly® garden using drought tolerant and native plants that need minimal irrigation once established.

Rebates are available by reservation only.

To receive your rebate:

1) Qualify through the pre-approval process, which includes an application, copy of your water bill, and submission of 4 to 5 photos of the area where turf will be removed.

2) After receiving a reservation, you have up to 120 days to complete your turf removal project and submit your rebate request.

3) Upon approval of the request, you will receive a rebate check.

The turf removal project must not begin until you receive a reservation in order to be eligible for a rebate.
