Expert Plant Selection

We include our clients in the plant-selection process. We guide you in choosing climate-specific and drought tolerant plants that thrive year round in California, and whose size, shape, color play a part in creating a cohesive, professional landscape design.

We called KB5 Designs based on reviews we read and we are so glad we did. Ed came out and listened to what we wanted and the concerns we had. He measured the yard so we could start our rebate process. Once we were approved he and his wife kept us informed on when he could schedule us in. He showed us his design intentions which we loved! We were lucky to have our project completed quickly. He and the crew he contracted to do the demo/prep/irrigation were knowledgeable and worked efficiently. Our new front yard is beautiful!

What are turf removal rebate programs?

The California drought is serious, and Glendale Water & Power is finding ways to encourage water conservation. Keep grass green takes a LOT of water, and so Glendale is offering cash incentives for residents and businesses to remove and replace their lawns with drought tolerant plants, irrigation, and landscaping. Getting those rebates requires applying in advance and then making sure your new yard is compliant.


KB5 Design Studio can help you apply and comply with Glendale’s Turf Removal Rebate program!
