Keeping your yard green by going green

Where your yard is concerned, the drought doesn’t have to be a death sentence. There are ways on how to keep your lawn green and beautiful without gaining a reputation as a water waster.

Many homeowners have chosen to replace their lawns with drought-tolerant landscaping such as rocks, mulch, and shrubs. While these are solid options for people who never use their yards for recreation, they don’t make much sense for those of us who like to play outside with our family, friends, and pets.

If you want to conserve water but still need space to romp and relax, artificial grass is your best bet. EasyTurf is the ideal solution for a green, drought resistant lawn without the guilt. EasyTurf offers a low-maintenance, drought-friendly synthetic lawn that can lower your monthly water bill by up to 70 percent, freeing up your time and money for other adventures.

In some areas, you may even be eligible for rebates and incentives to replace your water-hungry lawn with desert-friendly plants or artificial turf. For example, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Cash in Your Lawn program will pay $3.75 for every square foot of lawn removed and replaced.
EasyTurf’s artificial grass features a 100 percent permeable backing that ensures swift drainage, so wetness is only temporary. This also makes clean-up quick and easy — just pick up your dog’s waste like you normally would, and hose the area off.

And although EasyTurf is durable enough to withstand heavy foot and paw traffic, it is still soft enough to roll or run around on, serving as the perfect outdoor play area for you and your loved ones.  Best of all, only you and your gardener will know that you’re saving water while maintaining the appearance of a beautiful drought resistant lawn.
