Eco-turf is another way of describing synthetic grass or artificial turf. The main difference between real grass and fake grass is that the real grass is a living thing that needs water in order to survive. When you see lush green grass in areas that do not have a large amount of rainfall, the only way that this is happening is if water is being brought in from somewhere else. Due to advancements in irrigation and sprinkler systems, we now have the ability to bring water in from other areas in order to grow plants that would not naturally grow in our area. This is why places like Anaheim have been able to become as lush as they are, even though you can drive just a few miles outside of the city and see the way the natural landscape actually looks. You’ll notice that it looks far more like a desert than it does inside the city. This is specifically because of artificial watering systems that allow for water to be brought from other places into our area. This is an advancement that is allowed us to essentially become wasteful, and use the water that is crucial to our own survival for watering plants that are purely decorative. As long as there’s plenty of water to go around, there is no problem with this. However, during times of drought when there is not necessarily enough water available to be able to sustain the life of all living things in an area, we must as a community conserve water so as to make sure that no one suffers as a result of our wastefulness.
Synthetic turf is one of the best ways to become a better steward of our community and also to save money if the same time. This is because the installation of synthetic turf is going to allow you to have the same look and feel as the lush green grass that we have become used to seeing in our community, without using the water that is necessary for us to sustain our own lives. Unfortunately, we must admit that the installation of wheel grass at the current point must be looked at as a mistake. We may have had enough water in the past to sustain both our own lives as well as wasting water on grass and tropical plants, but the climate has changed to a point where our water levels become dangerously low periodically. Because the frequency of this drought situation has become a continual issue, we must realize that times have changed and we must correct the mistakes of the past. This means that whenever your grass finally dies due to the watering restrictions this year, it would be a good idea to not invest more money into repairing the same mistake. Instead, invest that money into eco-friendly solutions that will also provide beauty to your home. Invest in synthetic turf today, and reap the rewards in the future.
