Get paid to transform your landscaping! Menlo Park Municipal Water customers can receive a rebate of up to $2 per square foot to convert your lawn into a water-efficient landscape. Be a part of an innovative trend in landscaping and garden design that replaces traditional lawns with modern, eco-friendly plants, flowers and landscape elements. The result is an exciting and stylish landscape that saves money, is easy to maintain and conserves water.
Environmental Program staff will contact you to schedule a pre-conversion site inspection.
When your site passes the pre-inspection, the City will issue a "Notice to Proceed" giving you 4 months to complete your conversion. Lawns that have been converted without a pre-inspection will not be eligible for a rebate.
After 90 days or project completion (whichever comes first), contact the Sustainability Division to schedule a post-conversion inspection. Your receipts for materials and labor will be collected after this inspection.
Receive your rebate check in the mail upon project approval (please allow 6-8 weeks for processing).
