[ARCHIVED] Upcoming Updates and Changes to CCWD's Lawn to Garden Rebate Program

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

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

Stay tuned for the following changes and updates to the LTG Rebate Program in Spring 2023.

  • 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 LTG rebate along with front yard lawns. Previously only front yard lawns were eligible for the LTG rebate.
  • Expanded Garden Design Assistance Program: LTG Rebate Program applicants will be able to participate in the District’s Garden 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 LTG Rebate Program project.
