Grass Replacement Class: Culver City

Division IV

In order to help protect our communities from the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), West Basin is postponing all District events, classes, and community programs through April 30 and until further notice.

You are welcome to register for programs currently scheduled from May to the end of the calendar year. Given the circumstances, you will be provided with a status update closer to the scheduled program date. We are also working on offering alternative, online education programs in place of in-person gatherings. We appreciate your understanding during this time and we look forward to hosting you once the District resumes normal operations of its public outreach, education and conservation programs.

For questions about District conservation programs, please contact Gus Meza at


West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) is adding an additional dollar to Metropolitan Water District's (MWD) rebate for a total rebate of $3 or more per square foot of grass removed from residential and commercial landscapes. As a member agency of MWD, West Basin service area residents and businesses can apply for MWD's rebate program and receive the extra incentive.

West Basin is hosting five free classes, beginning in Spring 2020, for service area residents and businesses to learn how to transform their landscapes into drought-tolerant gardens and take advantage of the updated MWD rebate program.

During the class, residents will learn how to:

  • Remove existing grass
  • Plan a sustainable garden design
  • Prepare a healthy soil for plants
  • Incorporate a water-efficient irrigation system
  • Plant climate-appropriate plants
  • Maintain a new, drought-tolerant landscape

Advance registration for all classes is required.
