California's Drought Prompts Lawn Tear Outs Across the State

The California drought has gotten so bad, the California Water Foundation proposed changing the State flag to portray a camel on a sand dune.

A recent article in San Mateo’s Daily Journal states homeowners are tearing out natural grass lawns and replacing them with synthetic turf and other water-friendly landscapes. In many homes, up to 70 percent of monthly water usage can be attributed to landscape care and maintenance.

It makes sense – this is the third summer in a row California has been called on to limit water usage – a voluntary call to action to conserve.

There are many benefits to the homeowner who chooses an EasyTurf install. First and foremost, they are part of the water-conservation effort! Obviously a 70 percent reduction in water usage is significant and deserves a big “thank you.” That 70 percent water savings also translates into a 70 savings on your monthly water bill.

EasyTurf homeowners will also enjoy a lush, green lawn, year round, with absolutely no maintenance – no watering, no mowing, no weeding, no fertilizing, no weeding. You can simply open your door and take in the beauty of a manicured green lawn. Solve common lawn problems with an ultra-realistic looking artificial grass turf lawn. Our synthetic grass is especially efficient at solving problems associated with dog urine killing your grass, grass for shade, drought tolerant grass and lowering lawn water and maintenance costs.
