Large Property Turf Replacement Rebate Program
Multi-family and non-residential water customers can now receive $1.20 per square foot to convert areas of high-water, cool-season turf grass (such as Kentucky Bluegrass) into native and waterwise landscapes. To qualify for the rebate, the converted areas must have at least 50% living plant coverage.
In addition to supporting the city's water conservation goals, benefits of these landscapes include savings on your water bill, lower long-term maintenance, habitat for pollinators, and increased drought resilience.
Eligible water customers include
Businesses, HOAs, multi-family complexes, schools, parks, faith-based organizations, and other commercial, industrial, or institutional water customers within the City and County of Broomfield.
