INSTALLING SYNTHETIC TURF IS A POSITIVE MOVE FOR WATER CONSERVATION
Private landscape irrigation is approximated to end up using nearly 9 billion gallons of water per day.
In particular areas, outdoor water use can account for up to 70 percent of San Francisco private residences' water consumption. Between 30,000 and 70,000 gallons of water every year is used to water a 1,000 square foot lawn.
AND IT WILL SAVE MONEY
For a 1,000 sq ft job, this can mean a savings of 70,000 gallons every year, or as much as $350 off the water bill, on its own. Our residential lawn products are warrantied for 15 years, so during the entire life of the lawn, you can save approximately $5,250 in water cost.
The mean cost of fertilizers and pesticides for residential areas in San Francisco is $0.20 square foot per year. For a 1,000 sq ft lawn, that leads to savings of $200 annually, or $3000 over the life of the lawn.
ELIMINATE WASTE AND TIME SPENT ON MAINTENANCE
The EPA believes that, typically, 33.2 million tons of yard trimmings were generated annually, the third-largest part of Municipal Solid Waste in landfills. The resident spends 150 hours every year caring for the lawn. Artificial turf eliminates that requirement.
