Natural grass is your landscapes most water-intensive plants and can take up 50 to 75 percent of your water bill, said the Environmental Protection Agency. Over the years, certain cities have taken a ‘shine’ to synthetic grass and the amount of water one can save, especially during inevitable water shortages that many states face. Sometimes unbeknownst to the homeowner or commercial property owner, synthetic grass rebates are available and will often help in the cost of a synthetic grass installation. Do not hesitate to check with your local water department and homeowner’s association to find out if you qualify for rebates that can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars on your project.
Here is a step-by-step way to collect a rebate:
- Contact your city planning department or Home Owner’s Association and confirm synthetic grass is permitted.*Cities across the nation have also issued “Turf Removal” rebates, so at the very least, they will offer you a rebate to take out natural grass.
- Understand the rules and steps required to obtain your rebate.Consider these items:-How much funding is available-A list of approved products
-A copy of your most recent water bill
-The original sales receipt for your synthetic grass purchase
-The minimum/maximum rebate amount (i.e. square footage)
- Contact Synthetic Grass Warehouse for a free quote!
It’s also a good idea to stay informed about drought conditions in your area. Rebates can vary for each region depending on the local water issue such as the local quality or quantity. Give it a shot!
