San Diego officials help residents with landscape makeovers


The start of the New Year always brings new resolutions. Among promises to improve oneself and one’s home, there’s a resolution that will save San Diegans money and conserve water. By conducting a landscape makeover and maintaining a healthy landscape, San Diego water customers may be eligible for cash-back rebates on:

• Smart controllers
• Micro-irrigation
• Sustainable landscapes/turf replacement

For those who are not sure where to start or how to identify water-efficient measures for their landscape or property, the city offers a free Residential Water Survey or a Commercial Landscape Survey. City Water Conservation Program representatives are available to visit a customer’s home or business and conduct a water audit on the property to find any water-saving opportunities and identify costly leaks.

“With the call for conservation, San Diegans have done a great job of conserving water and we want to support our customers integrating this water ethic as part of our long-term lifestyle,” said Kyrsten Burr-Rosenthal with the City’s Water Conservation Program. “This is an opportune time to start the year off by improving our landscapes now that watering times are permanent — water before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. from November through May.”

Funded by state grants, the rebates are available to eligible single-family, multi-family and commercial customers on a first-come, first-served basis. For program guidelines and an application, visit or call (619) 533-7485.
