WaterSaver Landscape Coupon
Transform your landscape and get a coupon from SAWS to help you pay for every 200 square feet of grass you remove — saving water and money!
How It Works
STEP 1: Take Photos
Take photos of where you plan to remove grass and install your new garden bed.
STEP 2: Apply
Apply online for the $100 Coupon by Oct. 15 and attach the photo you took of the location of your future garden bed.
STEP 3: Remove Lawn and Sprinklers
Remove at least 200 square feet of grass per coupon and any sprinklers. That’s about the size of an average parking space. No permanent irrigation is allowed in the new beds. If you have irrigation, take pictures of any sprinkler heads, valves, drip lines or other irrigation components you have removed to comply with the program requirements.
STEP 4: Shop and Get Gardening
Redeem your plant coupon at a participating vendor by Nov. 15. Select 15 plants in any combination. Then plant them to create a contiguous 200-square-foot garden bed. After you redeem your coupon, you will receive an email with a link to submit photos for inspection. Save that email.
STEP 5: Send Final Photos
Once you’ve completed your beds, take photos and find the email we sent you when you redeemed your coupon. Open the inspection form in the email and attach your photos to that form and send it to SAWS by Nov. 30. Do not attach to the email.
STEP 6: Conservation Review
Photos will be reviewed against program criteria. Participants not meeting the criteria for success will be contacted via email with ideas on how to make them successful. Until then they are ineligible for additional programs.
Coupon covers only a portion of the costs at participating vendors.
You must purchase 15 plants from the approved WaterSaver Coupon list (no substitutions). Small plants must be purchased in 1 gallon containers and small trees in 5 gallon containers.
Redeem your eCoupons from your mobile device at participating stores by Nov. 15. A cashier will enter the store code on your mobile device to validate the coupon.
Note: You will be required to submit photos of your completed project in order to be eligible for more coupons or other conservation programs. Customers will receive 3 WaterSaver Rewards points for successfully completing their final inspection (limit 3 points per year).
If you have an irrigation system, you must remove all the sprinkler heads and drip lines in the area where you will install beds or patios. Take photos to document your system before and after removal.
We have No-Contact Irrigation Consultations now available. Review our Irrigation Design Rebate program requirements. If you believe you will be removing enough irrigation to qualify for an Irrigation Design Rebate, schedule a No-Contact Irrigation Consultation to receive a rebate offer before you do any work.
To request a No-Contact Irrigation Consultation, call 210-704-SAVE (7283). If you have a current rebate offer from a consultation within the past 12 months, let conservation staff know when you call.
Whether you are trying for an irrigation rebate or not, take multiple before-and-after pictures of your irrigation system components such as heads, valve boxes or other components. You will need to submit them to complete the coupon and qualify for any Irrigation Design Rebate offer.
Eligible customers will receive an email with their Landscape eCoupon(s) within two weeks. It will be sent to the email address provided in the application.
Customers who apply for multiple coupons will receive them in separate emails. Each coupon may only be used once with a single vendor. If you receive multiple coupons, you may use each one at different participating vendors.
The Fine Print
SAWS residential customers can apply for up to four WaterSaver Landscape and/or Patioscape coupons seasonally. Combine up to four total Landscape and Patioscape coupons any way you like.
There is a lifetime limit of eight coupons per service account.
SAWS reserves the right to inspect new beds and patios installed with this coupon. Customers are required to submit photos for the final inspection by Nov. 30. WaterSaver Rewards points will not be awarded for submissions past this date.
Existing landscape beds are not eligible for this program. Customers may expand existing beds as long as 200 square feet of grass is removed.
Nursery partner prices, customer plant selection and plant size will determine the plant package’s final cost. SAWS does not guarantee availability nor dictate prices for participating nurseries.
SAWS reserves the right to use photos submitted on this application for program promotions. Identifying information as to customer name and address will not be used on selected photos.
