Water conservation is always a big concern and nowhere is that more important than in Arizona where rainfall averages less than 13 inches per year. Luckily, Arizonans have an easy option for saving this precious resource and it’s one they really love – artificial grass.
In Arizona, more and more homeowner’s and business owners are replacing water wasting lawns with artificial grass. It truly is “cropping” up everywhere – school playgrounds, sports fields and recess areas; building landscaping; day care center play areas; pet kennels and dog runs; and, of course, front and back yards. As we become increasingly “planet conscious” as a society, we’re finding lots of new ways to use artificial grass to save water.
Artificial grass is replacing real grass in larger and larger numbers because it doesn’t need to be watered. With the average American home using roughly 50% of its water for landscape applications, it’s also a great way to reduce your water bill. And with 8 billion gallons of water going toward outdoor uses each year, it’s easy to see that we waste a lot of water. Artificial grass requires no water at all, so it’s a great choice for planet-conscious consumers. And unlike some other water-saving methods, artificial grass is easy to install and is usually finished in just a few days. Although there is an initial investment, the long-term benefits far outweigh the investment.
