Save Our Water

Searching for Turf Grass Replacement in the Greater Sacramento, CA Region?

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has a rebate program for removing turf and replacing it with landscapes that require very little water at California single-family residences to support the State’s drought response. For more information on the program’s history, go to the DWR turf site at here

The $24 million program budget is expected to support the conversion of more than 10 million square feet of turf, or approximately 20 percent of the statewide goal of 50 million square feet of turf.

Up to $2 per square foot of removed and replaced turf will be rebated per eligible household. The total rebated amount, including any rebates the homeowner has already applied for from another agency, can’t exceed a total of $2 per square foot.

The rebate process consists of two on-line application steps. Here is how the process works:

Part 1

  1. Submit the application to determine if you qualify for a reservation.

  2. Receive your reservation approval to begin the conversion project.

  3. Start and complete your re-landscaping project per the program guidelines.

Part 2

  1. Complete the rebate application for review.

  2. Receive your rebate approval notice.

  3. Get your rebate check!

The How to Apply page will provide specific details on completing the two part application process.
