ProGreen Artificial Grass is a Green Product
ProGreen artificial grass is a green product in more ways than one, and it even earns LEED credits for your home or building. When making an investment in a big home improvement project like installing synthetic turf, you’ll have many questions/concerns about whether or not it is the right decision for you. However, the impact that artificial turf has on the environment should not be one of them. At ProGreen, we strive to make the earth cleaner and healthier every chance we get, and by investing in our artificial turf you will be, too. You’ll experience:
- No more mowing, which reduces emissions and groundwater contamination from gas spills.
- No more watering, thus helping to conserve water.
- No more fertilizing, which also reduces groundwater contamination and pollution.
As a society, we’re wasting one of our most prized resources by heavily watering our lawns, playgrounds and athletic fields. For example, over half of a household’s warm weather water usage goes toward watering the lawn. According to the Irvine Ranch Water District in California, the installation of a 750-square-foot synthetic lawn can save approximately 22,000 gallons of water per year. ProGreen Synthetic Grass gives you the look and feel of grass without wasting water.
ProGreen Synthetic Grass also eliminates the need for gas-powered mowers, trimmers and aerators. By installing ProGreen Synthetic Grass, your overall dependence on oil is reduced and watersheds are spared from accidental fuel spills while trying to fill up our lawn mowers and trimmers.
