Grass Replacement+

About the Grass Replacement + Program

West Basin continues to encourage residents to be SUPER-CALI-FRUGALISTIC every single day by removing water thirsty lawns and replacing them with beautiful climate-appropriate gardens.

The Grass Replacement+ program offers eligible residents an increased rebate of $5 for every square foot of grass replaced.

Up to $25,000 per project is available to upgrade your landscape and remove up to 5,000 square feet of grass. A minimum of 250 square feet of grass must be replaced (for a rebate value of $1,250).

Increased rebate! $5 per square foot of grass replaced up to $25,000

How Do I Sign Up?
