In South Texas, fall can be a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors and spend some quality time in your yard with friends and family. That time is even more valuable when you know you’re not breaking the budget by overwatering a big grass lawn!
If you’re still watering and mowing and watering a huge lawn, have no fear! There’s still time to treat yourself to our WaterSaver Landscape and Patioscape Coupons and transform your outdoor space from bland to beautiful. Apply by Oct. 31 and receive a coupon for each 200 square feet of grass you remove.
If you have an in-ground irrigation system, you must call 210-704-SAVE (7283) or email us for a free irrigation consultation before receiving your coupons.
No irrigation system, no problem. You can start by removing the turf in the area you want to change. For help on losing the lawn, check out our how-to video on removing grass. And if you need inspiration for design ideas, peruse our GardenStyle photo galleries.
Your friends and family will be impressed by your new patio, where you can relax and enjoy the smart and pretty plants you just put in, all while raking in the savings on your water bill. Coupons can be redeemed at any of our participating vendors through Nov. 30.
Still have questions? Give us a call at 210-704-SAVE (7283) or email us for information on our coupon programs and other ways to save money on your water bill.
