New California State Turf Removal Rebate Program

In August, the State of California’s Department of Water Resources rolled out the ‘Save our Water’ Rebate Program for removing turf and replacing it with landscapes that require little water at California single-family residences. Eligible households can receive up to $2 per square foot of turf removed, up to a maximum of $2,000.

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.

While the Program does not include rebates for synthetic grass, it does offer rebates for low water use, drought-tolerant or California native plants. Rebates are also available for food-producing trees, shrubs, vines and perennial plants.

For more information, visit the ‘Save our Water’ website here.

Fall Planting Guide – Create Contrast with Synthetic Grass and Fall Plants

Fall Garden

It’s time to take advantage of the best time of the year for planting! The Sunset Magazine Fall Planting Guide is now out and is a great resource for fall planting tips, best plants for the fall and winter gardens.

The cooler fall weather makes it easier on young plants and the soil is still warm from the summertime heat. Fall is also a great time to remove a traditional lawn and replace it with a combination of low-water use plants and synthetic grass. Many Californians have let their lawns turn brown in light of the drought, and in preparation for winter rain, have opted to remove their dead lawn and install artificial grass to avoid a potential mud mess with a rain storm.
