Turf Removal Rebate Projects

With nearly 20-years of landscape design experience in Southern California, KB5 participated in the previous Turf Removal Rebate Program. We know how to create drought tolerant landscapes that conform to the DWP rebate requirements, and we’re familiar with the application and approval process. We’re ready to help you transform your lawn, into a drought proof paradise!

Santa Monica

Drought Proof Paradise

From a pile of dirt to a personal paradise! Creating our client’s dream oasis required a multi-layered space with unique areas for resting and relaxation. An abundance of butterflies and hummingbirds enjoy the nature inspired planting palette. The intimate pergola seating is enhanced by the gentle sounds of a personal waterfall and stream. Dining is enjoyed al fresco on the bluestone patio softened with ribbons of flowering groundcover. And there is no better way to relax than a garden hammock.

West Los Angeles

Turf Removal Rebate Project

What was once weeds, tired grass, and construction debris…became a client’s personal resort for staycations at home. The elegance of bluestone enhanced with the purple tips of acacia trees, lush flowering gardens and a mini citrus grove created this West L.A. homeowner’s dream-come-true. Beautiful redwood fencing provided a stunning canvas for the abundant plantings. A salad and herb garden completed the experience for these stay-at-home cooks.

Modern Drought Tolerant Landscape

An unused lawn becomes a one of a kind expression of our clients’ unique personalities with creative plant structures, oversized boulders, and a stream of colorful stone. Bordering a protected wildlife habitat, we blurred the lines between nature and home. This highly drought-tolerant and Southwestern themed planting reduced watering from three days a week to once a month!

Water Conscious Business Landscapes

Proactive business & commercial property owners also have the opportunity to benefit from the Southern California rebate programs. As with this project for Keller Williams, KB5 converts high-water-use and maintenance intensive landscapes into smartly designed, water-wise spaces.


Not only does upgrading to a responsible, eco-friendly landscape save money through utility bills and maintenance fees, but it also creates a friendly environment that is welcoming to customers and tenants.  With the ever more restrictive watering guidelines and new rebate programs, now is the time to make the change to a climate appropriate landscape.
