Program Eligibility & Highlights

Changes to the program highlighted below:

  • Residential customers must be a SAWS water customer.
  • If you have an irrigation system, you must remove all irrigation in the bed area before planting, and by doing so may qualify for a Residential Irrigation Design Rebate.
  • Customers with irrigation systems are required to schedule a pre-consult and irrigation checkup to be eligible for a coupon. Call 210-704-SAVE or email us at to schedule an appointment before making any changes to your irrigation system. Possible rebate opportunities will be discussed at the consultation.
  • Participants can apply online or fill out a paper application (PDF).
  • SAWS will mail eligible customers a coupon to be redeemed at partnering nurseries for a portion of the package cost. Allow two weeks from submission to receive your coupon.
  • The bed must be at least 200 contiguous square feet. Customers who remove at least 400 square feet may apply for a maximum of 2 coupons (per package cycle).
  • Customers may only receive a maximum of 8 total coupons (both WaterSaver Landscape and Patioscape combined) per service address. Customers who have redeemed 8 total coupons are no longer eligible for this program.
  • You must apply 1 cubic yard of mulch (organic or crushed granite/rock) around your plants for each 200 square feet of grass removed. (That's roughly 17 standard bags of organic mulch.) You may also make your own mulch with leaves/wood chips or use rock as long as it is 2 inches deep.
  • The package is available for grass/turf replacement only. Existing beds are not eligible for this program.
  • Customers must pick 15 plants from the approved plant list, a minimum 1 gallon size. Plants may be chosen in any combination. Customers are responsible for verifying sun and watering requirements for plants.
  • The WaterSaver Landscape Coupon is only available for the purchase of the plants from the list. No substitution of plants.
  • SAWS does not guarantee plant health. Please consult your nursery professionals and Garden Style San Antonio for water, sun and maintenance needs.
  • The customer must agree to allow a post-inspection by SAWS staff. Here is the post-inspection checklist.
