Announcing CCWD's Lawn to Garden Rebate Program Amount Increase


Get reimbursed for converting your backyard lawn to a water-wise garden—and receive more than ever before!

Contra Costa Water District has updated the Lawn to Garden Rebate Program to encourage participation and help customers save even more water. The Lawn to Garden Rebate Program incentivizes customers to improve their water efficiency by removing water-thirsty lawn and replacing it with low water-use water wise plants.

  • Increased Max Rebate Amount: Doubling the maximum rebate amount from $1,000 to $2,000 for single family residential customers. The rebate amount of $1 per square foot of lawn that is converted will remain the same.
  • Backyard Lawns Now Eligible: Backyard lawns will now be eligible for the rebate along with front yard lawns. Previously only front yard lawns were eligible for the rebate.
  • Expanded Garden Design Assistance Program: Applicants will be able to participate in the Landscape Design Assistance Program to receive a free 2-hour design consultation for their front yard lawns and will now also be able to receive an additional free 2-hour design consultation for their backyard lawns. Customers will have to pay $200 upfront for each 2-hour design consultation, however, they will receive a $200 rebate for each consultation upon successful completion of their Lawn to Garden Rebate Program project.
