Californians see synthetic grass benefits during historic drought
The California drought continues to drag on like a extended stay from a bad house ost. You think its going to end, you want it to end, but the days just get longer.
This drought continues, and there will be future droughts. The longer it goes, the more homeowners look for alternatives to watering their lawns to keep them green. I was listening to NPR yesterday, and one Southern California landscape company saw their synthetic turf sales junmp from $250k in 2012 to $2.5 million so far in 2014.
It’s not a big surprise – installing a synthetic grass lawn not only gives your a year-round green yard, but it cuts your water usage by up to 70 percent. Or as this article referenced UC Irvine study puts it, the annual amount of water needed to maintain the average lawn each year is about 34,000 gallons, or about 670 bathtubs full of water.
