Outdoor Rebates

Weather Based Irrigation Controller (Smart Timers)

Smart controllers use water more efficiently than traditional timers by adjusting the watering schedule based on current weather conditions. This provides the right amount of water for each part of your landscape each day.

Residential smart controller typically range from $150 to $1,000 and commercial smart controllers range from $300 to approximately $11,000. These ranges vary depending on the size of the sprinkler system.

Soil Moisture Sensors

Soil moisture sensor controllers are placed below ground in the root zones of lawns and landscapes to determine if and how long to water. They are available as stand-alone controllers or add-on devices to existing controllers.

Rain Barrels and Cisterns

Capture the rainwater that falls on your roof and use it later to water your plants. Rain barrels can reduce urban runoff and ocean pollution.

Rotating Sprinkler Nozzles

Upgrading to rotating sprinkler nozzles distributes water more evenly and efficiently than traditional pop-up spray heads.

Drip Irrigation

Convert spray heads to drip irrigation, which uses emitters to deliver water to specific locations at, or near, plant root zones.

Turf Removal
