But overall, it is very easy to stay within the guidelines as long as you are an SNWA customer and you are replacing grass and/or a man-made water feature that pumps from the SNWA system. The most important part of the process is to get approvals prior to starting any of the project to ensure that you comply with the regulations.

The official Southern Nevada Water Authority website supplies an official landscape rebate calculator that will estimate how much money you will earn through your conversion of at least 400 square feet. While the rebate won’t usually pay for the entire cost, it does provide a nice dent into your project budget.Southern Nevada Water landscape rebate

Other important guidelines that must be met are you must create the proper desert scape in the are from where the turf was removed. At least 50% of the area must be covered in living plants. From the website: “Upon completion, converted areas must contain enough plants to create at least 50 percent living plant cover at maturity. The SNWA provides a list of plant cover values to be used regardless of the size of the plants at the time of inspection. In a single family residential project, you may instead request SNWA to determine whether the requirement is met by considering the entire plantable area of the front or back yard where the conversion occurred.”
