Five Water-Friendly Ways Artificial Turf is Beating the California Drought

As California continues its drought, home and business owners are constantly looking for ways to conserve water. Still, many are hesitant to replace their natural grass with artificial turf.

Synthetic turf has come a long way. Today’s turf technology allows contractors to create eco-friendly landscapes that look remarkably similar to natural grass. These are five ways that artificial turf installation is helping California beat the drought.

Artificial Turf is Just as Functional as Natural Grass

Californians are replacing their natural grass with countless drought-friendly materials. From pavers and rock gardens to ice plants, homeowners are saving water in any way possible.

While these materials look great, they don’t provide the same surface for activities as artificial turf. With synthetic grass, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite outdoor activities in a far more water-conscious way.

It’s Easier to Maintain

Artificial turf is inorganic, so it never needs to be mowed, watered or fertilized. Not only does synthetic grass save you countless hours of time and money on upkeep, but you’ll save a lot of water as well.

Studies show that most of the water homes use in a year goes toward their landscaping. By installing artificial grass, you’ll simultaneously improve your environmental impact and cut down on maintenance.

Synthetic Turf Has Better Drainage

Natural grass can flood, becoming muddy and unusable. Artificial turf is made with highly efficient drainage to ensure rain and other materials can flow through easily. 

It Stays Cooler 

Living in a dry, hot climate shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying the outdoors. At Synthetic Grass Warehouse Sacramento, we carry the latest UV-resistant technology to keep your lawn cool even in the summer. Our TigerCool turf products use heat-reflective pigments to keep your lawn up to 10 degrees cooler. In some parts of California, that’s the difference between staying in and enjoying the activities you love. 

Artificial Grass Stays Green Year-Round

Keeping a natural grass lawn alive during a drought is a steep uphill battle. Even with heavy watering and fertilizing, your yard is likely to suffer from brown spots.
