So I was reading an article in the Sacramento Bee today (http://www.sacbee.com/news/state/california/water-and-drought/article25425739.html ) and have come to realize the severity of the drought is far worse than I ever could have imagined. We have lakes headed toward record lows, farmers who need more water for agriculture, endangered fish species that may go extinct, Hydro plants that can’t run at capacity and reservoirs that supply water to several cities that are becoming so low that residents may soon find that they have no water coming out of their taps.
I’m not looking to scare you, but it should. You may be even thinking to yourself, it’s Mother Nature, what can I do about it? Well there is a simple solution, you know that beautiful lawn out front or even your back yard? Get rid of it, tear it out. Then what? Consider installing a synthetic lawn and California native plants and other drought resistant vegetation, even consider rock landscaping or a combination of all these possibilities. Were you aware that the lawn you and so many love is one of the biggest culprits of our drought problem? The average lawn, approximately 1800 square feet, uses roughly 99,000 gallons of water a year. Californians alone waste approximately 6.4 billion gallons of water every year to keep their lawns green.

With California in its fourth year of drought, have you given thought to going green? Not just eco-friendly green but synthetic lawn green. Its lush and even looks like the real thing, even lawn purist can’t deny that. Synthetic lawn quality has come a long way just since the 90’s – enough so that even the most discerning Californians are making the switch.
The average 1,800 square foot lawn consumes about 99,000 gallons of our drinking water a year, that’s just one lawn. If everyone in California was to switch to a synthetic lawn, we could likely end our drought and eliminate pesticide, herbicide and fertilizer run-off.
So don’t you think it is time we called on Gov. Jerry Brown and our state legislators to make synthetic lawns mandatory? Many Californians feel it’s time we encouraged and allowed synthetic lawns everywhere, from front and back yards to businesses to schools to golf courses. We are in a drought stricken state and it only looks to get worse, we are using 6.4 billion gallons of drinking water everyday just to water our lawns.
Synthetic lawns are low maintenance and even though they cost more up front than a traditional lawn, it only takes 3 to 6 years to see a return on the investment. Today’s synthetic lawn is not your Grandfather’s Astroturf. Today’s synthetic lawns have fibrous tufts that are luxuriously textured and colored and available in many different varieties for the home alone. It looks and feels just like your natural lawn, so why not make the switch and do your part to help end California’s water crisis? Just imagine a time where we no longer waste our drinking water on unnecessary natural lawns. The synthetic lawn is groomed with a brush, so no more mowing and putting those harmful emissions into the air, so now your helping not only conserve water but improve air quality. There are also many rebates in California that range from $1 to $3 a square foot to remove your natural lawn. We have the rebate list here on our website.
Gov. Jerry Brown has recently proposed fines that could go as high as $10,000 for “excessive water use” and ordered a 25 percent reduction in water use statewide. Local city and county water agencies will enforce restrictions and issue penalties to those who don’t comply. Many homeowners are becoming stuck between a rock and a hard place because many HOA’s won’t allow synthetic lawns and require that residents water their lawn on a regular basis to keep their yards green, all while the state demands water reduction, so what are these homeowners to do? This is why we need the Governor and state legislators to step in and protect homeowners willing to do their part in conserving our most precious resource. So what are you waiting for?
