Why So Many Pet Owners Are Switching to Synthetic Grass

Aside from the savings on your water bill and the maintenance free yard, synthetic grass has huge benefits for pet owners! In recent years we’ve seen a huge increase in artificial lawn used for doggy day cares, dog parks, and dog runs.

With an artificial lawn, you’ll no longer have brown dead spots in your yard from pet messes or muddy paw prints tracked through the house. The durable polymer grass material makes it difficult for dogs who like to dig as well as for fleas and ticks to make themselves at home in your lawn.

At EcoLawn, we use a synthetic lawn material that is completely non-toxic and 100% lead free, so it’s a safe environment for pets. Our secret behind the ultimate pet lawn lies within the infill – an all-natural product called ZeoFill.

ZeoFill is a turf deodorizer made from natural volcanic ash that works to absorb pet urine and prevent ammonia from creating odors. When it rains, the rainfall flushes out the ZeoFill, pushing the bacteria through the turf and recharging the ZeoFill when it dries.

California Governor Orders Mandatory Water Use Reductions

Shortly after winter came to a close after delivering exceptionally low levels of snowfall this year, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order mandating a reduction in water usage by 25 percent on all local water supply agencies in California. Included in the Governor’s executive order was a mandate for the state to work with local governments to replace 50 million square feet of traditional ornamental lawn with synthetic lawn or planting that consumes less water–meaning additional funds for government rebates for replacing traditional lawn with synthetic grass.

Conservation Why & How

Water is California’s most precious and natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought thats headed towards the most sever stage 3 conditions very quickly. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.

California cannot take its water supply for granted. While state and local leaders continue to work on long­term solutions to our water challenges, saving water on a daily basis helps to stretch our supply. In dry times, conservation is a critical tool to help ensure that we have enough water for our communities, environment, farms and other important parts of our economy. It’s easy for every Californian—young and old—to save water every day. The good news is there are lots of simple ways to reduce the amount of water that we use at home, both inside and outside. If we all work together, we can make a difference for California’s future.
