Why are all rock lawns not accepted as part of this rebate?

Many residents are already choosing to convert their lawns, however, many are using weed fabric and rocks and eliminating irrigation. By choosing to only use rock the ground stays hotter, and trees can die if landscaping doesn’t include greater plant diversity not just rock.  The grant that supports this program requires a minimum of 50 percent plant coverage to offset heat and prevent our community from becoming more arid.
