  • installing new or repairing existing irrigation systems
  • laying new sod and mulch
  • planting of trees, shrubs and flowers 
  • pruning hedges or trees 
  • removing weeds, debris, trees and limbs 

 

Successful grant recipients must provide proof of home ownership, occupancy and income for the last three months for all members of the household. In addition, applicants must provide bank statements for the past two months and copies of government-issued identification for all people living in the household who are ages 18 and older.
