THE CITY SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR LANDSCAPE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

The city of Henderson is accepting applications for its loan programs that help residents with landscape improvements, including replacing grass with water-efficient landscaping.

The Homeownership Enrichment Landscape Program is designed to help residents remove turf and replace it with landscape that is more drought-tolerant. The program also helps with other improvements to the yard. Homeowners can apply for a loan up to $5,000, which does not need to be paid back until the home is sold or there is a change in ownership.

The city also offers the Turf Removal Program, which also is up to $5,000 at 3 percent interest and amortized over a seven-year period. The loan allows residents to replace grass with desert landscape.

For more information, call 702-267-2000.
