Austin Water’s WaterWise Landscape Rebate helps residential customers convert turf grass to native plant beds. This can reduce or end the need for extra watering.
Residents may receive $35 for every 100 sq.ft. (minimum 500 sq. ft.) converted from healthy turf grass to native plant beds up to $1,750. Austin Water accepts applications twice a year: Dec 1 – Mar 31 (for spring installations) and Jun 1 – Sept 30 (for fall installations).
