Find Out How Much San Diego Will Pay You To Transform Your Lawn

If you’re on the fence about changing-up your landscaping, increased financial incentives could help nudge you to decide.

The San Diego County Water Authority and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California have upped their game with increased financial offerings to San Diego residents who replace their turf with sustainable landscaping features.

In this issue, the San Diego landscaping experts with Juniper Landscape Company will explain the incentive program and talk more about sustainable landscaping.

How much could I get for replacing my lawn?

Residents of San Diego could qualify for $2.75 per square foot of lawn replaced with sustainable landscaping. Customers of the City of San Diego residential water could be eligible for an additional $1.25 per square foot for certain projects.

That’s an increase of the $1.75 per square foot offered during 2016. Then, more than 175 San Diego homeowners took advantage of the incentive and cashed in while transforming their lawn at the same time.

Also, under the current plan businesses are eligible for $1 per square foot of lawn replaced.

“Over the past few years, the Water Authority has helped foster sustainable landscaping through financial incentives, a demonstration garden, hands-on classes and publication of a detailed guidebook,” said Mark Muir, chair of the Water Authority’s Board of Directors.

“We’re excited to take the next step so that homeowners in the San Diego region can maximize their rebates with one application.”

What are sustainable landscape turf replacements?

Simply put, sustainable landscape revolves around selecting plants and landscaping features that are natural and adaptable to the Southern California climate.

Ideally, the new sustainable landscape will reduce the waste of water while nurturing the soil, recycling organic matter, and conserving energy.

The four (4) main points of sustainable landscapes are:

  1. Treating water as a resource – with the right design and plant selection, irrigation can be reduced or eliminated altogether
  2. Valuing the soil – getting away from compacted soil, which leads to erosion, restriction of growth for plants, and runoff and flooding
  3. Preserving existing plants – Holding on to native plants while removing and replacing ones that are invasive and non-native
  4. Conserving material resources by choosing plants that are appropriate in size, and reusing and recycling landscaping materials

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
