SpokaneScape Turf Replacement Program

Removing turf grass is one of the most water conscious adjustments a homeowner can make to reduce their water usage and associated costs. SpokaneScape is a water-efficient landscape that has been designed specifically for Spokane residents; its focus is on the replacement of lawn with low-volume irrigation and drought tolerant plant material. A well-designed SpokaneScape will beautify your property, protect our natural resources and the environment; and will inevitably reduce yard maintenance.

You can earn up to a $500 credit towards your water bill after removing your lawn and replacing it with water-wise plants and mulch. You may claim $0.50 per square foot of lawn removed with a minimum of 300 square feet per year.

How do I Apply?

Step 1: Project Start Approval

Before you begin your project or remove any turf, you must apply and receive approval. Please read the Terms and Conditions thoroughly before applying for your rebate.

Complete the SpokaneScape Application to apply for your project start approval.

Items to have ready before applying:

  • At least 2 color photos of the area(s) where you plan to remove turf.
  • A simple landscape plan which shows the area to be transformed. If you need more inspiration, be sure to visit our SpokaneScape Virtual Tour!
  • A plant list and area calculation form which lists the drought tolerant plantings you’ve chosen and verifies that plants will cover at least 50% of the project area.
  • Your City of Spokane utility bill account number.

Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our staff and a pre-inspection appointment will be scheduled. Do not begin your work until you receive approval to start your project at your pre-inspection appointment.

Once you have been authorized to begin your SpokaneScape project, funds will be reserved and you have 90 days to complete your project.

Step 2: Final Inspection & Rebate

After completing your project, you are ready to request a final inspection appointment. Upon the final approval of your rebate application and inspection, you will receive a credit on your City of Spokane utility account within one to two billing cycles.
