Earn Double for Pulling Out Turf

Ready to ditch your lawn? PWP recently joined Metropolitan Water District’s SoCalWaterSmart Turf Removal Program, and you can now earn double the rebates!

Now’s your chance to swap thirsty turf for water-wise landscaping and earn $2 per square foot, effective July 2014! All water customers are eligible.

Lawns typically drink up 50 percent more water than other plants. To qualify for the incentive and slash your watering bills, just replace at least 250 square feet of living grass with water-wise plants and groundcover. Commercial and multi-family customers can earn up to $10,000.

To start, snap a few “before” photos of your existing living lawn and submit your landscape plan to www.SoCalWaterSmart.com. Once you receive the OK, stop watering your grass, pull it out, and replace it with colorful water-wise plants, trees, decomposed granite, gravel and mulch.

Find the application and full details at www.SoCalWaterSmart.com. Check out Pasadena’s Water Smart Landscaping Guide, full of inspiring photos, at www.pasadena.watersavingplants.com.
