Water-wise Landscape Rebate

To receive a rebate by the end of the year, application and photos of the current lawn must be submitted no later than Aug. 1.

Projects must be complete, pass final inspection and have all paperwork submitted by Oct. 15.

Water-wise landscape

Aurora Water incentivizes the conversion of water-guzzling turf lawns to water-wise landscapes. Water-wise landscapes are attractive, lower maintenance yards that save water, provide wildlife habitat and withstand drought.

In addition to converting to a landscape such as the one pictured above, we also provide rebates for conversion of Kentucky bluegrass to low-water grasses. For our semi-arid region, grasses that require low amounts of supplemental water and maintenance to survive make the most sense.

Whether you choose a colorful plant-based landscape or low-water grass, you’ll conserve water and save money on your water bill by switching to a water-wise landscape.

Water-wise landscape rebate basic rules:

  • All projects must be approved by Aurora Water prior to installation.
  • Areas to be converted must be grass that is in good health.
  • Projects must be front, side areas or both that are readily visible to the public.
  • A 500-square-foot minimum size applies to all projects, unless it is for the entire front yard or curbside area (the grass between the sidewalk and the street).
  • A phasing option is available.
  • Before completing the application, be sure to read the Water-wise Landscape Rebate Manual
