California’s drought is making national news.

Pressure on Southern California to conserve water is increasing.

Today, Southern California water managers vowed to get more aggressive in water conservation efforts, while Governor Jerry Brown implores all Californians to conserve water.  The Sierra snowpack is only at 10 percent of normal, reservoir levels are dropping and no relief is in sight.

“This drought is a big wake-up call and a reminder that we do depend on natural systems. It’s not all just going to the store and see what we can buy,” Brown said.

Artificial grass installation in San Diego continues to grow as more homeowners recognize the positive financial and environmental impact of EasyTurf. An average urban household’s organic sod lawn uses over 100,000 gallons of water per year! Water use can be immediately cut by 70 percent with an artificial lawn or synthetic grass installation.  EasyTurf boasts artificial grass environmental benefits in other ways too:

  • §  No carbon emissions from lawn mowers which can emit 10 times more pollution than cars.
  • §  EasyTurf’s water conserving grass requires no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers that pollute natural water supplies.
  • §  Decreases trash in landfills by utilizing recycled car tires making it more than just one of a variety water saving products.
  • §  EasyTurf’s water saving landscaping causes no urban run-off into sewer systems or the ocean, creating an environmentally friendly drought grass solution to your residential and commercial landscaping needs.

San Diego County officials are working on plans to cut back and encourage water conservation to bring to the board of directors Feb. 27. In the meantime, fake grass and synthetic lawn installations in San Diego and state-wide will continue to have positive effects on the water supply and environment.
