The City of Grand Junction is launching a Turf Conversion Program to help City water customers save money on their water bills and enhance their landscape.
This is also known as a lawn conversion, which removes turf grass lawns that require a lot of water while maintaining existing trees to create a beautiful water and climate-wise landscape that fits the local climate. A water-wise or xeriscape is not a rock scape. Water-wise landscapes can include native plants that attract pollinators, and fire-resistant plants and need to be very low to moderate water-loving that work well in our area.
The largest portion of residential water is used to water the landscape, so why not install lower watering-loving plants to save water and money? Rebates of $1 per square foot for turf replacement are available for approved applicants.
Properties that are all rock that have already been converted into a water-wise landscape do not qualify for the program
