There has never been and break in the watering restrictions in Clark County over the past few years. We have been in a drought condition for many years, as can easily be observed by looking at the water lines on the mountains at Lake Mead. Water levels are continually dropping and not being replenished to the levels that they need to be in order to assure that there will be enough drinking water for people and animals, so we keep watering restrictions in place in order to save as much as possible. As water becomes more scarce during the summer months, these restrictions will increase. Home owners must realize that a lush and green landscape is not natural to Las Vegas, and a desert climate is more what we should be seeing in our yards. Even though we can easily afford to pay for the water that gets put onto our grass in order to keep it green, we all must participate in the programs in order to conserve, for the good of our community. Grass is simply not as important as the lives of people and animals, so we must make sacrifices to protect those lives.
The city and county has many ways to compensate home owners for the losses they incur if they end up removing their existing grass and replace it with something more water smart like rock, pavers or concrete, desert landscaping or artificial turf. For every square foot of grass that is removed under the programs and replaced with a compliant ground covering, home owners can be reimbursed up to two dollars. That square foot of grass that is removed will save the area upwards of 55 gallons of water every year, so it is in the best interest of everyone to participate. If professionally installed, the rebate programs along with the ongoing savings that you will see in your water bill and landscaping every month can virtually pay for the artificial turf installation. This home improvement will then continue to save money and time, and add extra value to your home if you decide to sell it in the future.
