Missouri City Offers Rebates
''Greens for Greenery'' is the tagline for a new program that will give Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri area residents half off their landscaping project as an incentive for homeowners to implement low-impact landscaping techniques.
To qualify, the project must meet the Lake of the Ozarks Watershed Alliance's goal of reducing or controlling stormwater runoff. In this program, LOWA provides for discounted landscaping and lawn-care services as an incentive to implement its low-impact landscaping with the help of partnering businesses and LOWA's 319 Healthy Lake grant.
The LOWA Landscape Professional Partner gives a 10 percent discount on its services, and LOWA kicks in the next 40 percent of the landscaper's bill with the cost-share benefit capped at the first $5,000 of the bill. So at the maximum, a $5,000 project would only cost the homeowner $2,500.
