When you hear the word synthetic, eco-friendly isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind. You may be wondering if artificial grass is good for the environment, and the answer is yes! ProGreen offers the best value for green synthetic grass in the industry. You can even earn LEED points for your home or building by installing artificial grass!
What is LEED you ask? Well, a LEED certification is the highest level of achievement in the green building industry, and ProGreen Synthetic Grass helps your qualify. A building or home can earn LEED points for the various green features incorporated, and, depending on the number of overall points it can be LEED certified.
Why would you want your home to be LEED certified? Primarily, because you want to ensure your home is healthy, safe and eco-friendly. Second, it increases your home’s value, as well as makes it more marketable. Certified green homes are selling more quickly and for a higher price point than comparable, non-green homes.
There are four different levels of LEED certification – Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum – based on the number of points your home achieves, and ProGreen Synthetic Grass helps to accumulate these points by reducing overall irrigation demand on a property. You can find detailed information about the points awarded for water efficiency on the U.S. Green Building Council website.
