Rebates for Your Fall Garden Projects

Posted on October 15, 2018 at 9:17 AM by Ann Vallee

fall gardens for webFall is a great time to make garden upgrades, and we have rebates to help!

Get up to $50 for organic mulch or compost: Adding these materials to your garden helps build rich, spongy soil that can better absorb and hold on to water—a natural storage system for winter rains. A blanket of mulch can also help prevent erosion during downpours and keep root systems warm and snuggly in the event of a cold snap.

Get up to $50 for rain barrels: Make the most of what Mother Nature delivers to your property by investing in a rain barrel or cistern to capture some of your roof runoff for later use. Rain barrels are ideal for watering container plants or for use as a backup supply in the event of an emergency.

Get $2 per square foot from the State of California when you replace your thirsty lawn with water-efficient landscaping, up to a total rebate of $2,000. Fall is a good time to tackle this project as winter rains can help new plantings get established.
