The “Lawn Be Gone” rebate offers up to $4 per sq. ft. of lawn which is replaced by drought-tolerant plants from the BAWSCA Approved Plant List. The list includes more than 2500 plants
There are several related rebate programs for San Mateo County which might significantly reduce the cost of putting in a drought-tolerant landscape. See “Drought Tolerant Landscape – Water Conservation – Rebates“.
