The five program modifications are: 1) increasing the square footage (sq. ft) eligible for program rebates; 2) allowing dedicated irrigation customers to participate in the program annually; 3) increasing the turf replacement rebate amount from $0.50/sq. ft to $0.75/sq. ft; 4) requiring replacement plant density of 50% at plant maturity, and 5) prohibiting the replacement of turf with rubber mulch.
