Say Goodbye to Your Thirsty Yard and Hello to a Beautiful, Water-Wise Landscape!

Valley Water's rebates help you save water and money.

Join the Thousands of Residents Who Have Transformed Their Yards and Saved Money on Water Bills.

With Valley Water's Landscape Rebate Program, You Can Receive Up to $3,000 to Upgrade your Lawn with California-Friendly Plants and Optimize your Yard's Irrigation System.

Why transform your yard?

  • Half of our water is soaked up by thirsty landscapes.

  • Much of that water is wasted due to inefficient irrigation systems.

  • Upgrading from a lawn to low-water plants is not only beautiful, but it also helps pollinators thrive.

  • Installing a smart irrigation controller, high-efficiency nozzles or an in-line drip irrigation system saves water and money.

  • Capturing rainwater with rain barrels, cisterns, and rain gardens can provide water for your yard. Use our rebate to install for free. 

  • Our design assistance and rebate programs make it easy to upgrade your yard.

How to claim your rebate of up to $3,000*

  • Create your account and get a pre-inspection.

  • Share your plant selection or irrigation plan and get approval to start landscaping.

  • Send us pictures of your yard transformation or new irrigation system.

  • We'll mail you a check in 4-6 weeks.

We are here to help!
