New WaterSaver Coupons Spring Forth

Don't just dream about having a lush, water-efficient landscape and inviting outdoor living space. Create it (and save a ton of money) using SAWS WaterSaver Coupons!

Springtime is upon us, and that means SAWS WaterSaver coupons are emerging from their winter slumber to inspire smart landscape makeovers.

Starting this month, SAWS residential customers can apply for up to four $100 WaterSaver coupons in order to replace part of your thirsty lawn with lush, drought-tolerant garden beds and/or permeable patios. That’s a whopping $400 in savings!

Imagine having your own rich garden bed, complete with radiant plants like butterfly iris, esperanza, mistflower, mountain laurel and more. These water-efficient landscapes will not only keep your lawn looking fresh for spring but also help you conserve water and save money on your water bill year-round.

Each coupon is intended to cover only a portion of the cost of the plants or patio materials. Combine the coupons to your liking to create an inviting outdoor living space. Customers can apply for coupons through May 31.

For each coupon, you must remove at least 200 square feet of grass, the single most water-demanding element in a residential landscape. You will also need to cap any irrigation heads in the area where you will install beds or patios. By doing so, you may also qualify for our residential irrigation design rebate, which may further lower the cost of your outdoor project.

The exciting update for 2018 is the introduction of electronic coupons, or eCoupons. Once your online application is approved, your coupon will be sent via email. Customers who apply for multiple coupons will receive them as separate emails.

When you’re ready to shop at a participating vendor, simply present your eCoupon from your smart phone at the register. Click “Redeem Now” and a store employee will enter a password to validate your coupon.

With inspired ideas and a thoughtful budget that includes SAWS WaterSaver Coupons, it’s simple to create the beautiful, water-saving landscape you’ve always wanted.
