Earn rebates for saving water this summer

Thursday, March 23, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Austin Water uses its Landscape Survival Tools Rebate to encourage lawn care practices that conserve water. Pay upfront for the mulch, compost and core aeration. Once the work is completed, you’ll take pictures, and send them to the city along with your receipts and application. Two cubic yards (or 54 feet) of compost will earn you a $50 rebate, 2 cubic yards of mulch is worth $40 and the core aeration service rebate is worth a cool $30. Email the materials to, or send them by mail to Austin Water Conservation, P.O. Box 1088 Austin, TX 78767. And learn a whole lot more about the program at You can also fax it to them at 512-974-3504.
