Spring is here and River-Friendly Landscaping site evaluations have started! The program is completely voluntary.

River-Friendly Landscaping improves water quality by assisting homeowners in voluntarily reducing or preventing soil erosion. The program covers neighborhoods in the Truckee River watershed within the Town of Truckee, Placer County, Nevada County, and Sierra County. The Watershed Council provides free site evaluations, Treatment Workbooks, and resources for homeowners.

Rebates Available!

Our River-Friendly Landscaping rebate program is available until funds are exhausted. Participants are eligible for up to a $1,000 rebate when our recommendations are installed.

To learn more about typical recommendations, view tips and resources our website. Watch for before and after photos coming soon!

We are rapidly filling up, so please call today to schedule your free site evaluation at 530-550-8760 x3.

Together, we can reduce hundreds of tons of soil erosion, protecting our yards and our rivers.
