San Diego Will Pay You for Sustainable Landscape Turf Replacement?

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 7 December , 2016

New incentives for turning lawns into sustainable landscapes are now available through the City of San Diego. In this issue, we’ll talk about how you can conserve water, reduce runoff and get the most out of irrigation – all while being reimbursed by the City.

What are sustainable landscape turf replacements?

Simply put, sustainable landscape turf replacements involve the removal of turf and replacing it with landscapes that require little irrigation.

It’s a vital component of the overall sustainable landscaping concept, which is designed to actually help to develop healthy communities. It does this by isolating carbon, cleaning the water and the air, restoring natural habitats and increasing overall energy efficiency.

Specifically, 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

What incentives is the City of San Diego offering for sustainable landscaping?

Through its Sustainable Landscapes Program, the City of San Diego is offering a $1.75 per square-foot incentive to homeowners who live within the service area of the San Diego County Water Authority.

You’ll be able to receive up to $3,000 in incentives.

Participants will be required to replace water-intensive turf grass with landscaping designed to provide environmental benefits. Projects must also include:

  • Soil enhancements
  • Rainwater capture and detention
  • Water-efficient irrigation
  • Climate-appropriate plants and trees

There is an application process and the incentives will not last forever, so follow the link above to get the ball rolling.

    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
