The Water Bans Continue
The water bans continue… and state regulators are getting serious.
Today, due to the severe drought, many states will consider $500 fines for anyone who is wasting water on landscapes, fountains, washing vehicles, and other non-essential outdoor uses.
Fines could be based on a sliding scale. They will start with a warning for the first offense. The San Diego State Water Resources Control board, among others, has reported support for the programs like this.
“So far, people have been pretty supportive,” board Chairwoman Felicia Marcus said. “I think people recognize that we’re taking a moderate approach and sending a message as much as anything.”
If you’ve been considering an artificial grass lawn, now might be the time to pick up the phone and call www.fieldturflandscape.com. A FieldTurf Landscape artificial grass installation will immediately cut your water usage by up to 70 percent! That’s you cutting way back on your water use and your water bill. Let me break that down just a bit. If your monthly water bill is $100, installing FieldTurf Landscape products can cut it to $30 – that’s $70 saved.
And if you’ve got a dog – or several – FiendTurf Landscape pet products are a great option. Pet owners love FieldTurf Landscape for many reasons. We eliminate many common lawn issues associated with pets – digging, tracked in mud, urine spots, fleas, ticks, and other bugs. In fact, renowned dog whisperer Cesar Millan recently installed more than 10,000 square feet of FieldTurf Landscape Pet product at his Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, Calif.
“Here at the Dog Psychology Center, we have a lot of land to cover, so it’s important to me that our water conserving landscape is easy to care for, safe for our pack, and has proper drainage,” said Millan. “FieldTurf Landscape was the best choice for us and is the best choice for your pack.”
Artificial grass applications have expanded dramatically since 2010. An artificial grass product once only used for sports fields and small front yards has expanded into all facets of outdoor landscape and surfacing. FieldTurf Landscape’s artificial grass lends itself to many surface applications because of its extraordinary advantages over other landscape and outdoor surfacing options.
FieldTurf Landscape has also expanded indoors. We now offer indoor golf, play, and training surfacing. Bringing all the benefits of field training indoors without the mess. All while standing up to the strict fire-safety standards. To find out more about the industry-leading synthetic turf, check out www.fieldturflandscape.com.
Droughts, water bans, water rate increases, wasted water fines, lawn maintenance – if you’ve got a natural grass lawn, these are issues that never go away. But if you’ve got a FieldTurf Landscape’s artificial lawn, these are things you never worry about.
