The town of Gilbert, in a commendable collaboration with the Salt River Project (SRP), has launched a rewarding initiative for local businesses and Homeowners Associations (HOAs). The Gilbert Grass Removal Rebates program offers an enticing incentive of up to $6,000 for those willing to swap out their grass for a more eco-friendly, low-water-use desert landscaping, including artificial turf.

The impetus for this program stemmed from a recent agreement ratified by the Gilbert Town Council. The agenda? A shared vision for a greener, more sustainable Gilbert.

SRP has graciously stepped in to amplify the impact of this rebate program. Pledging a dollar-for-dollar match, SRP promises to fund the program to the tune of $15,000 annually for a span of five years. That’s a collective pot of $75,000 aimed at championing eco-awareness in landscaping practices.

For participants, the math is simple and the rewards, plentiful. Gilbert’s non-residential water customers can pocket $2 for every square foot of grass they remove. This applies to qualifying projects covering up to 3,000 square feet. But why this urgency to remove grass, you ask? The ongoing water shortage on the Colorado River has precipitated this eco-conscious move. On an average scale, grass guzzles five times more water than the local, desert-friendly alternatives.

Benefits Beyond the Rebate

The Gilbert Grass Removal Rebates program isn’t the town’s only stride towards sustainability. Gilbert is also at the forefront in offering a separate grass removal rebate program for its residential inhabitants. Plus, there’s a smart irrigation controller rebate program available for all its customers. However, it’s crucial to note: all rebates apply strictly to new projects.
