Landscape Rebate Program

Water conservation for large commercial properties in the Bay Area CA, Burlingame

Do you wish you could reduce water use on your commercial property? Are you ready to rip out your lawn or convert your high water use landscape into a more sustainable, low water use, drought-resistant design? Convert your landscape, upgrade irrigation equipment, or add rainwater capture for thousands less. Valley Water’s Landscape Rebate Program offers help for San Jose Bay Area, Palo Alto, Burlingame, Pleasanton, Hayward, Fremont, Livermore, and Walnut Creek area businesses.

How Much Can You Save with the Bay Area Landscape Rebate Program?

Valley Water offers landscape rebates up to $3,000 for single-family residential sites and multi-family properties of 4 or fewer units and up to $50,000 for commercial/multi-family sites of 5+ units. In cost-sharing areas, rebates may be even higher. Sustainable landscape conversion and rainwater capture rebates within cost-sharing agencies offer an additional $2,000 for single-family residential sites and multi-family properties of 4 or fewer units, and $15,000 for commercial/multi-family sites of 5+ units, for a maximum rebate up to $5,000 and $65,000 respectively.

What Waterwise Landscape Improvements Qualify for Rebates?

  • Changing overhead sprinklers to in-line, low-volume drip irrigation
  • Upgrading approved, high-efficiency, water-saving irrigation equipment
  • Integrating weather-based smart controllers, rain sensors, and leak detection
