Las Vegas residents are generally looking for ways to make their lives less complicated and easier. Many people retire to the Las Vegas community specifically for this reason, in order to retire from the life they had lead before, taking it easy and trying to reduce the amount of stress they have on a daily basis. This is why there are so many golf courses in Las Vegas, to cater to the demand of people who are seeking leisure time activities, and attempting to enjoy their lives instead of working at them. Many people view Las Vegas as the payoff for a lifetime of hard work, chores, saving and cutting corners, and the last thing they want to do is yardwork. The thought of going out into 110 degrees so care for the lawn and the landscaping plants is not very high on anyone’s list, and the thought of paying someone upwards of 200 dollars every month to do it for you is also not that great. This is why so many people in Las Vegas are improving their property values by installing maintenance free landscaping that is both water smart and stays beautiful.
Water smart landscaping generally refers to a landscape in your yard that does not need watering in order to survive, or at least minimal watering. Some people opt for “desert landscaping” or “xeriscaping” which is the use of rocks and desert plants to create a beautiful and yet desert natural look. Others choose artificial turf to create a lush and green look that simulates real grass without needing the watering or the care and maintenance. Many people do not realize that a perfect way to both create a worry free landscape that does not need maintenance and at the same time create a functional and useful space that you are going to use daily is to install a personal putting green. Because personal and backyard putting greens use artificial turf, they will qualify for the rebates that the water authority offers for the removal of existing grass and the replacement with water smart ground coverings. This can be a rebate of up to two dollars for every square foot you install, and while typical artificial turf does create a beautiful look, a synthetic grass putting green allow you to use your yard to get better at your golf short game. This little addition to your living space allows you to be a good steward to the Las Vegas climate and conservationist effort, while improving your property values and creating a space that you love to use.
By installing a personal putting green, you put yourself only feet away from practicing whenever you want to. No more driving all the way to the course and parking your car in order to work on your putting. All you have to do is go out into the backyard and there is a perfectly level and pristine area to putt all day long. Personal putting greens add value, they save you time and effort on landscaping, and they conserve water. What could be better than that?
