Dry Winters and Water Free Grass

Saving water is more important than ever. Last winter had record rainfall, but this winter is dry and it could stay dry for another 10 years. Since the end of statewide emergency water conservation, mandatory water restrictions have been dropped, and communities water usage has increased.

But the drought can return, and can last a very long time. We need to conserve water for our region as it continues receiving high-pressure systems preventing rain in our area.

The Sierra Nevada mountains snow pack level was only 22% of it’s historical average; and people are using more water now without the statewide restrictions. The candle is burning at both ends, and water shortages could be inevitable if we don’t change our actions. Installing water-wise landscaping is a fantastic option for people that want to save water and enjoy a specially designed landscape for their home. We all need it, water is a limited resource, and encourage everyone to take action and save the water we can, even when it’s raining. https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/02/14/california-drought-water-conservation-slipping-statewide-as-dry-weather-returns/

Having an EcoLawn saves water and water quality in a variety of ways. People don’t have to water their EcoLawns, and there is no chemical run off from fertilizers or weed killers from EcoLawns.

    Thankful for Water & a Full Wallet

    From beautiful ocean views to the water we drink, there many things in nature to be grateful for. Sometimes the choices people make can disrupt nature and what we appreciate. Here at EcoLawn, we are committed to protecting the natural environment and conserving water. Did you know that converting only 100 square feet of grass to an artificial lawn can save 8,976 gallons of water per year? That equates to running a sprinkler for over 33 hours (1). Water isn’t the only thing that can be saved with an artificial lawn. Converting that 100 square feet of grass can save $672 per year, including the average cost of yard maintenance. Saving money and water is always something we can be thankful for.
