More and more homeowners are removing their lawns in favor of no water grass. While it might seem like this is more of a trend that is based upon the current drought conditions that are seen in California and Nevada, in reality the reasoning behind this choice is more varied than that. There are many reasons why a homeowner or a business owner would choose to undertake the expense of removing an existing landscape installation and having a new one put in, and in the case of artificial turf the reasons mostly have to do with water and maintenance. After some time, people begin to tire of the ongoing routine of either maintaining their landscaping themselves or paying someone else hundreds of dollars each month to do it for you. In addition, people see the time and money that is spent maintaining a living landscape as potentially a waste if they can achieve the nearly identical look and feel using synthetic elements that have almost no cost of upkeep. In a nutshell, the decision of many property owners to move over to desert landscaping, synthetic grass and xeriscaping is both monetary and convenience based. Still others are simply motivated by the desire to conserve water during drought times, doing their part to help the planet and community. There is no single reason for the choice, but the choice is always driven by water.
A living lawn needs water in order to survive, and must be continually fed water through irrigation systems or hoses in order to keep its green and lush appearance. A living lawn also grows continually, meaning that in order for it to look good it must be trimmed back to a point of looking presentable. Someone is going to have to do that work, and if you are not able or willing to do it you are going to have to pay someone else to do it for you. You are literally feeding living plants that you are then paying someone to trim in order to keep your landscaping in a place that is both lush as well as tidy. The installation of no water grass and desert landscaping puts your landscape into a place where it appears to have been freshly trimmed and is lush looking like it has been watered all along. The difference is that it has not been watered and needs no water to continue to look good. It also will never grow and therefore will never need any maintenance except the occasional sprucing up by removing debris that may have blown in from other areas. The trimming aspect never comes into play because the lawn and landscape is not growing.
This solution of no water grass is perfect for anyone who enjoys their landscape but does not want to continually maintain it and pay for it. Once the installation costs have been paid, there should be no need for ongoing landscaping or even replacement. Artificial grass installed by Desert Greenscapes comes with a ten year warranty just to assure you that you will not have to replace it any time soon. It will remain looking good for many years, keep its green appearance and never need to be trimmed or mowed. You will be doing your part to conserve water, saving money and time. Installing artificial grass and desert landscaping just makes sense.
