Rebates will only cover a portion of the costs for the removal of the turf. Further the rebates are paid after the work is completed and may not be paid for 6 to 10 months. The contractor who does the work expects payment upon completion of the work. The costs beyond turf removal will also include the removal of trees (many of which are already diseased and dying), the installation of new plants, rock, and trees. The money for the project needs to be in hand prior to the beginning of the work.
