SAVE TIME. BE A WATER SMARTY.
Thinking about a new paver patio? Water Smarty has $100,000 to help!
Water Smarty has $100,000 available for lawn replacement rebate projects. Residential projects can receive up to a $2,000 rebate. Multi-family, commercial or institutional projects can receive up to a $7,500 rebate. There are eligibility requirements for both types of projects. To get started, check out the Rebates page of this website for all of the program details and application forms.
The program suits projects that plan to remove lawn and replace it with a permeable hardscape material, like pavers, decomposed granite, crushed rock, or gravel. Past projects have used these materials for patios, walkways, extra parking, utility areas, and even mulch. Drought tolerant plants on drip can comprise 25% of the project area.
Rebate funds are available through two grants. Both grants end this year, so apply now to reserve your rebate and complete your project.
Residential rebate recipients must attend one water-wise workshop. In June, there will be two opportunities to learn about native plants in the home landscape, and how they can help with water conservation. Both workshops, hosted by the Sawtooth Botanical Garden, meet the Water Smarty education requirement for residential rebate projects. Please see the Resources page of this website for workshop details.
