Coupon recipients must meet these eligibility requirements: (a.) must be a SAWS residential water customer (b.) Must be the homeowner at the location where coupons will be utilized.

Customers may only receive a maximum of eight (8) coupons (WaterSaver Landscape and Patioscape combined) per service address. Customers who have redeemed eight (8) total coupons are no longer eligible for either coupon program.

If you have an irrigation system, you must remove all irrigation heads/drip lines in the bed or patio area before planting or installing your patio. Doing so may also qualify for a Residential Irrigation Design Rebate if certain criteria are met.

Customers with irrigation systems are required to schedule a free SAWS Irrigation Consultation to be eligible for a coupon. Call 210-704-SAVE (7283) or email us at consult@saws.org to schedule an appointment before making any changes to your irrigation system. Possible rebate opportunities will be discussed during the consultation.

WaterSaver Landscape Coupon Requirements

Existing landscape beds are not eligible for the WaterSaver Landscape coupon.

New landscape beds must be at least 200 contiguous square feet per coupon.

Customers must pick 15 plants in any combination. Plants do have minimum size requirements. Small plants must be purchased in 1 gallon containers and small trees in 5 gallon containers. These are standard size containers nurseries will have and your nursery representative can help you.

Customers are responsible for verifying sun and watering requirements for plants.

For the greatest success, thoroughly remove the grass in the bed area and mulch with 2 inches of mulch once the plants are planted.

The WaterSaver Landscape Coupon is only available for the purchase of plants from the approved list. There will be no substitution of plants, nor does SAWS guarantee plant health. Please consult your nursery professionals and GardenStyle San Antonio for water, sun and maintenance needs.

The customer must agree to allow a post-inspection by a SAWS representative.

Patioscape Coupon Requirements

The WaterSaver Patioscape Coupon is only available for the purchase of flagstone, stepping stones or pavers. No substitutions are allowed.

Patioscape must be at least 10 feet wide and cannot be used to create a pathway. See our example patioscape designs.

Customers must purchase enough of the feature item to cover 80 percent of a contiguous 200 square feet of patioscape per coupon redeemed. For example, if using 12-inch x 12-inch pavers, the customer will have to purchase at least 160 pavers; if using flagstones, approximately 1.6 tons will be needed (varies on thickness of flagstone).

The dug up area for the patioscape should be free of debris and have a hard packed, yet pervious sub-soil to build a proper patio foundation.

Base and fill material will be required to construct a functional patio, but is not covered by the coupon.

The coupon is intended to cover only a portion of the patioscape material costs.

Patioscapes must be constructed in a way that allows rain to infiltrate the ground (pervious). Concrete, mortar, asphalt or other impervious construction is not allowed.

The customer must agree to allow a post-inspection by a SAWS representative.
