Lawn Be Gone!

Now with New Rain Garden Rebate Option! 

The Rain Garden Rebate program is an optional program for water customers of the water agencies who participate in the Lawn Be Gone! program. In order to qualify for the rain garden rebate, applicants must apply to the Lawn Be Gone! Rebate Program. 

*Note: City of Foster City/EMID Does Not Participate in the Rain Garden Rebate Program*


Save water by removing your grass! Replace your lawn with a beautiful, drought-tolerant landscape and receive a rebate of up to $4 per sq. ft. Add a Rain Garden to your project and earn an additional $300 rebate! 


Notice: Due to the "shelter in place" order currently in effect in the Bay Area, rebate processing may be delayed at this time.  We appreciate your understanding. 


Rebates are available to customers of participating BAWSCA member agencies. To receive the rebate, you must submit an application and receive a Notice to Proceed from your water provider before removing your lawn.


For the fastest rebate, apply online. Note: you will need your water account number in order to register for an account and submit your application.
