If you’re concerned that your brown front lawn will be an eyesore this summer, you are in good company. But Solano County is still offering a cash rebate program that donates up to $1,000 per home for turf replacement, depending on the square footage of your lawn. The program is for both homes and businesses and is funded through the Valero Improvement Plan. Re-landscaping is simple, as you can plant directly over your lawn with sheet mulching (find a how-to video on the Solano Saves Water website). Native and drought-tolerant plants will promote beneficial insect life, save water and money on the water bill. You can schedule your pre-inspection on the website or by calling 707.455.1113.
