FLAGSTAFF, AZ. -- Pulling up grass in Flagstaff could earn homeowners some greenbacks.
The city is offering a one-time $500 rebate to households that remove at least 1,500 square feet of grass and replace it with rock or hardy native plants that require little water.
The average homeowner uses about 72 gallons annually to water each square foot of grass, according to the Bureau of Reclamation.
Adam Miller, Flagstaff water conservation manager, expects up to 20 households a year to take advantage of the rebate.
