Xeriscape

Due to Utah’s growing population, desert climate, and increasing temperatures, Utah is acting to reduce its water consumption. They have implemented statewide rebates to homeowners who convert their sprinkler timer to an approved Smart Irrigation Timer and Xeriscape their park strip. According to Utah Water Savers website, converting your park strip saves an estimated 5000 – 8000 gallons of water per year, which not only would save you money on your water bill, but the rebate will put cash back in your pocket. The rebate for the timer is $150.00 (excluding tax, shipping, & installation costs) and for the park strip is $1.00 per square foot, or $1.25 if the homeowner takes a class on water conservation. The homeowner must fill out the applications to get the rebates, but well worth the time to help Utah’s water conservation goals.
