This rebate program is brand new and there are a lot of questions.

Q:How big does my project have to be to qualify?

A: You must be removing a minimum of 200 square feet of grass to qualify for this program.

Q: If I already started a project, can I still qualify to get a rebate?

A: You must have a technician from Water Savers come to your property, measure, and approve your project in order to qualify for a rebate. If you are already mid-project, you do not qualify for this program.

Q: How much money do I get back?

A: This will depend on who your water provider is. Some are matching the rebate from the state so you will get even more back! You can calculate your estimated rebate on the Utah water savers website.

Q: Can I do the project myself?

A: Yes! It’s estimated that replacing grass by yourself will cost under $5 per square foot. If you feel overwhelmed by this prospect, you can hire a professional to help you.

Q: Does artificial grass qualify?

A: Yes! The program emphasizes the importance of natural foliage while also supporting water-wise choices like artificial grass. 35% of your project needs to be plant coverage. For example: if your project is 1000 square feet, 65% of that can be artificial turf and the other 35% can be perennials, shrubs, or trees.
