Arizona Conservation Water Rebates for Artificial Grass and Xeriscapes
If you’re the owner of a natural lawn who’s tired of mounting watering bills, or just looking to install some eco-friendly xeriscape, you may be eligible for some exciting rebates! Cities such as Scottsdale, Chandler, Mesa, and others are currently incentivizing property owners with lucrative rebate programs that aim to conserve water and promote the use of water-efficient xeriscapes, helping both create a sustainable future for our beautiful desert, and your wallet!
Before you start transforming your front or backyard, it’s important to know the requirements for these rebates. While program requirements vary from city to city, most require that your primary single-family residence has at least 500 to 1,000 square feet of well-maintained natural turf. Before you start any renovations or remove the grass you must submit a request to your city first. Failure to do so will make you ineligible for any rebates.
Participating in these programs you can receive rebates ranging from $250 to $1,000, depending on your location. This financial incentive makes it more affordable for you to make the switch to water-saving landscapes!
While artificial grass is an approved element, it can’t be the only change you make. You must incorporate at least 25%-50% Arizona-friendly plants to create a complete xeriscape. The aim is to maintain the beauty of your home while aligning with the principles of sustainable landscaping to better prepare your home and plants for drought periods. Actual requirements will vary from city to city.
Issuing the Rebate:
The method of receiving your rebate varies. Some cities will offer your rebate upfront as a lump sum incentive, while others provide it based on the square footage of your renovated xeriscape with a W-9 tax statement. The issuing authority for these rebates is typically your city’s water billing department. Some cities may give you the rebate amount as a credit to your water bill.

In addition to landscaping rebates, they also offer incentives for other water-saving measures, such as plumbing upgrades and more efficient irrigation methods.
