Get paid to replace your lawn!

Published on August 15, 2022


The “Lawn Be Gone!” rebate program is available for Menlo Park residents. By transforming your water-intensive lawn into a water-efficient landscape, you can receive a rebate of $2 per square foot, up to $5,000 per household. Rebates are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to eligible applicants.

Join the trend of replacing traditional lawns with stylish landscaping. Water-efficient landscaping conserves water, is easy to maintain, and provides long-term benefits to the environment. For tips and inspiration, check out the Water Wise Gardening Tool.
