Let’s face it, lawns use a lot of water and take a lot of time and effort to maintain. And they don’t give us a whole lot in return. Removing lawn areas reduces water used for irrigation and can improve the beauty and functionality of your yard while reducing maintenance needs. The City now offers rebates for replacing grass with materials that require little or no water for irrigation, including xeriscaped beds, gravel or stone hardscapes, pervious patios, and artificial turf grass.
The program is open to existing single-family residential San Marcos Water Utility customers with an account in good standing. Pre-approval is required in order to qualify for the rebate.
