Many Orange County residents love artificial grass for its beautiful appearance and low maintenance requirements. Less work for better results is something that any homeowner wants from their home. But, did you know that switching to synthetic grass landscaping also makes your home more eco-friendly? When you choose OC Turf & Putting Greens, you’re benefiting yourself and your local environment.
One of the biggest benefits of having artificial grass installed in your Orange County home is that you can significantly reduce your water usage. Since synthetic turf is made from polyethylene material, it doesn’t need to be watered daily in order to maintain its green hue. By drastically reducing this maintenance requirement, you’re also drastically reducing the amount of water that your home uses each year. This saves you hundreds of dollars on your water bill each year and conserves thousands of gallons of water—an especially important factor when living in drought-riddled Southern California.
Reduce Carbon Emissions
Since synthetic grass stays the same height and color all year long without maintenance, you can eliminate the landscaping associated with natural grass. There’s no need for mowing or trimming your lawn, and therefore there’s no need for gasoline-powered lawn tools. By eliminating this aspect of lawn maintenance, you can significantly cut your home’s carbon emissions and reduce your carbon footprint. This makes your home much more environmentally friendly without requiring you to sacrifice any conveniences.
Avoid Toxic Chemicals
Synthetic grass is completely non-toxic, making it safe for kids and pets. Not only that, but its synthetic nature means that it doesn’t require any toxic lawn chemicals such as fertilizer or pesticides in order to remain looking beautiful. This not only makes your backyard safer for little ones, but it also eliminates the chemical runoff associated with these products that contaminates the local water supply. By choosing to install artificial grass, you’re doing your part to protect local wildlife and preserve your local environment.
In an increasingly toxic world, it’s incredibly beneficial to be able to reduce our environmental impact where we can. By installing beautiful synthetic turf in your Orange County backyard, you can enjoy all the benefits that artificial grass has to offer while reducing your carbon footprint and conserving water each year.
