How to Apply for Landscape Conversion Rebate

Conservation for your landscape

  • Applicants must have received a pre-inspection.

  • Rebates are available for residents, businesses, or institutions located within Santa Clara County.

  • Participants must own the property to be eligible.

  • Applicants must attain pre-approval by participating in a qualifying pre-inspection and submit a Request for Application Form to the Santa Clara Valley Water District.

  • Areas to be converted must include approved high water using landscape at the time of pre-inspection.

  • In response to the drought, lawns that are dead, brown, yellow or green all qualify as long as the lawn is still physically onsite. Sites do not need to maintain a green, living lawn in order to qualify for the rebate program as long as the dead or stressed lawn was still onsite at the time of the pre-inspection and has not been removed.

  • Projects that have been started or projects that have already been completed prior to the Notice to Proceed are not eligible.

  • New construction does not qualify as the Landscape Rebate Program is aimed at encouraging retrofitting of existing facilities.

  • Rebate material must be purchased after receiving a written Notice to Proceed from the water district.

  • Projects must be completed within 90 days of date on written Notice to Proceed. Extensions can be provided on a case by case basis, if requested.
