Austin Water and The City of Austin are offering up to $180 in rebates for composting, mulching and aerating yards in preparation for the long, hot summer to come (like we needed to be reminded!) These important techniques ensure that water will be used efficiently and will reduce the need for supplemental irrigation. The weather's nice most days now, so start planning some advance projects to save water and some money.
- Compost – 1.5 cubic yards or 40 cubic feet--rebate $30
- Mulch – 3 cubic yards or 80 cubic feet--rebate $40
- Core aeration service for entire front and/or back lawn area (equipment rental is acceptable) --rebate $50
- The rebate for doing all three --$180 ($60 bonus)
