Water is our most precious natural resource, and it is also the one that is most wasted. For this reason, many local governments have started putting restrictions on water usage, and they are encouraging residents to cut back every way they can, including by offering rebates. Well, the most effective way to reduce your water usage is to eliminate your water thirsty natural lawn.
According to the Irvine Ranch Water District, many environmental benefits result from replacing turf grass with synthetic turf. At a typical residence (with about 750 square feet of turf), the installation of synthetic turf can conserve approximately 22,000 gallons of water per year. It also cuts down on the amount of green waste, like lawn clippings, going into landfills.
Synthetic turf conserves approximately 40 gallons of water per square foot per year through the elimination water used through household irrigation systems. Even in smaller towns, this is a savings of millions of gallons of water!
While conserving water is of the utmost importance, preserving our groundwater is also a top priority. Groundwater contamination is a directly caused by pollution, which is another problem that ProGreen artificial grass can solve. ProGreen grass eliminates the need for gas-powered mowers, trimmers and aerators, meaning our overall dependence on oil is reduced as are gas and oil spills. In addition, ProGreen grass doesn’t require fertilizers or toxic anti-weed chemicals, which often seep into the water supply due to run-off from irrigation systems.
If conserving water is important to you, then artificial grass is the perfect choice. Contact us today to learn more about ProGreen’s green features.
