If you’re interested in upgrading your outdoor irrigation system, perhaps you’ll qualify for a rebate of $200 to $600.

Different factors determine eligibility for Broward residents, including

  • Where you reside, use eligibility map

If you’re eligible,  apply online prior to performing any upgrades. Apply on the website. Officials from Naturescape Broward, which is within Broward County government, review the information and determine if you qualify.

The Naturescape Irrigation Service webpage describes upgrades available for rebates

  • “In the Zones”: a solution to imbalanced irrigation areas that mix spray heads and rotor heads.  This upgrade rebates the replacement of sprays with multi-stream nozzles and pressure regulating sprinkler (PRS) bodies or adding sprays/rotors to zones to eliminate head mixing and improve efficiency.  Using PRS bodies is mandatory.  (up to $300)
  • “Get Smart”:  Bring any mechanical wheel/pins timer into the Wi-Fi age with this upgrade that rebates new solenoid valves (control zones individually) and an EPA WaterSense-labeled weather-based (smart) irrigation controller.  System design must meet special criteria. 
    (up to $500)
  • “VIP Upgrade”:  Already have a digital irrigation controller with solenoid valves?  Take the next step toward cutting edge irrigtion technology and add an EPA WaterSense-labeled weather-based irrigation controller.  System design must meet special criteria.  (up to $200)
  • “Mix and Match”: Improve zone design AND upgrade to an EPA WaterSense-labeled weather-based irrigation controller.  (up to $600)
