Enhanced Turf Removal Program - $3 Incentive
On June 29, 2015 West Basin announced that it has increased the “Turfs Up” turf removal rebate to $3 per square foot for qualifying residents in its service area. The enhanced program provides a free consultation, where a landscape surveyor will assist the applicant in identifying turf that can be removed and providing information about low water use, drought-tolerant plants and drip irrigation. Residents who apply can now also qualify to receive up to two free rain barrels during the pre-inspection survey. Funding is limited and is first-come, first-served, so apply today! See flyer for full details.
