Agency Ups Incentives For Water-Efficient Landscaping

San Diego County residents who replace the turf in their yards with sustainable landscaping features can receive $2.75 per square foot of upgrades, thanks to a recently launched incentive program. Administered by the San Diego County Water Authority and the Los Angeles-based Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the Landscape Transformation Program boosts the incentive amount of an existing program in the hopes of not only saving water, but also reducing stormwater runoff and green waste.
