drought conditions hurt natural grass

Synthetic Turf is Perfect In Dry Settings

If you live in California, you are all too familiar with our hot, dry summers, and you may think that your landscaping options are limited.

Many of us fail to acknowledge that most grasses used for residential landscaping is not, in fact native to the region, and that is a huge factor in why it is so hard to keep it healthy and vibrant. In this area, grasses require copious amounts of water to survive, and even with frequent watering, there are many other issues that can make getting your natural grass to grow a challenge.

However, this certainly does not mean that your landscaping options are limited to stone and cacti. Of course, you can certainly include types of drought-resistant plants in your landscape design, but the crowning glory in any yard should be a lush, green swath of synthetic grass.

Artificial Grass Doesn’t Need Water to Thrive

In our drought-plagued region, one of the biggest factors for choosing an artificial grass lawn that it does not need the watering that natural grass does. Synthetic grass allows you to save not only money on your monthly utilities bills, but also water itself, which is one of our planets most precious resources.

When you switch to a synthetic grass lawn, those wasted hours and gallons are a thing of the past. All that your new lawn requires is the occasional rinse down if it gets dusty or dirty. You can reclaim those hours and apply them to something more useful, like a game of catch in the backyard.

If you neglect natural grass, even for a day or two, it can wither and die pretty quickly- particularly in the midst of a Sacramento heat-wave. You might get lucky, and be able to nurse it back to health, but with the frequent watering restrictions we face here in California, but more often than not, the lack of water proves to be fatal for your grass.

Synthetic grass lawns are able to tolerate even desert conditions without fading, withering, or changing much at all, to be honest. It’s not living, so it cannot be killed by lack of water, ever.

Synthetic Grass Looks Beautiful Year-round

Regardless of how much time you invest in it, natural grass is very challenging to keep looking healthy. This is even more the case when the sun is beating down on it all day long, and when we can go more than half a year without significant rainfall.

Our local temperatures vary dramatically between day and night, and that can also damage natural grass. If we have freezing temperatures overnight, then into a blazing sunny day, delicate blades of grass scorch and burn very easily. All of these factors combined translate to a real struggle to keep up a beautiful natural grass lawn.

On the flipside, if you go the synthetic grass route, then your lawn will look amazing every single day with almost no effort. Synthetic turf is the ideal choice for those who have neither the time, nor the interest in looking after a high-maintenance landscape.

You will also be delighted to learn that no matter how much foot traffic your synthetic lawn sees, it will never mat down or wear out. This is a huge advantage to big families, or those with kids and pets.
