Green Lawns Don't Have to Cost the Earth 

Iowa City homeowners looking to make their lawns greener, healthier, and more environmentally friendly can have 50% of soil quality restoration costs reimbursed, up to $2,000, by taking part in the Your Best Lawn program.

Your Best Lawn is a partnership between the City of Iowa City, the cities of Coralville and North Liberty, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The program helps residents enjoy greener lawns using fewer chemicals by providing funding for soil restoration projects on residential lawns. Improved soil quality leads to less ponding, greener lawns, and cleaner streams. 

Check out our soil health contractor list and learn about the rebates we offer to help you pay for soil quality restoration service. Rebates come on a first come, first serve basis.
