Lawn to Garden program

l2g

The Long Beach Water Department is offering home owners an opportunity to beautify their landscape and save water, energy and money. One can earn up to $3.50 for each sq. foot of grass lawn that is removed and converted into a water efficient landscape, which can naturally thrive in our semi-arid coastal region.

The Lawn to Garden website is designed to assist individuals on making the transition easy and possible.

“We live in an arid zone and we plant as if we lived in a rain soak environment. Our gardens are not in harmony with where we live. Water is a precious commodity here. We should deal with it in that way” said one Lawn to Garden participant.

The program is now accepting applications and even offers online classes to help educate participants. In addition, the website provides free design tips for water efficient gardens and even a discussion tab.

Let’s help the city of Long Beach conserve the water it has left!
