Supported by a Prop 84 Grant from the California Department of Water Resources, the City of Napa is offering water customers an incentive to replace their thirsty lawns with water-efficient landscaping. The program offers 50 cents per square foot to replace eligible lawn areas with:
Low-water-use, climate-appropriate plants, and/or
Permeable hardscape, and/or
The program is open to all properties that are served by a City of Napa water account – residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional.
$750 max for single-family residential
$2,500 max for multi-family, institutional, commercial, HOA
Customers may of course remove more turf area than is covered by the rebate program, but the per site maximum $ still applies.
Even low water use plants take water to get established. We strongly encourage you to wait to plant your new landscape until the water shortage emergency is over. We do not want your new landscape to send you over your monthly water allotment!
Due to drought conditions, the following eligibility requirements have been modified:
Lawns do not have to be green to receive the rebate
Artificial turf installations will be rebated
The project does not need to be completed within 180 days or by a deadline. We ask that you wait to plant when water conditions return to normal
