“Cash for Grass” is back in L.A. – Rip up your grass and get some green


In L.A., over half of our drinking water goes to water our lawns. Shifting to more climate appropriate plants can save up to 85% of outdoor water use. Now the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Residential Turf Removal program will pay you $1.50 for every square foot of turf you remove. Plan your landscape transformation carefully, and the rebate could completely off-set your costs to replant with California-friendly flowers, grasses, shrubs and trees!

    TreePeople is helping LA to change our landscapes from wasteful to abundant, from consuming and polluting to saving and regenerating. Ripping out our lawns is a huge start!

    I am so glad to make the break from having a front lawn. My reluctant lawn-mowing son is grateful as well!

    I did this with my little kiddos helping. It was such fun! Now they can't wait to see the butterflies our new garden will bring.
