Turf grass is one of the most water-intensive plants in your landscape. Its high water use and frequent maintenance make it a time-consuming and expensive yard option. In fact, the average residential customer spends about 60% of their water on outdoor irrigation. By changing turf to a California Friendly™ yard of drought tolerant plants you can save water and money.
To help with turf removal projects, rebates are available for $2.00 per square foot of turf removed. This increased turf removal rebate is being provided in response to Governor Edmund G Brown Jr.’s emergency drought declaration.
Below are a few examples of completed turf removal projects here in Pasadena. If you'd like some more landscape inspiration, visit our Drought Tolerant Landscaping
