Making the switch to synthetic turf makes environmental sense as a California resident. The water waste and chemicals necessary to maintain a green lawn just aren’t worth it, not to mention the noxious gases being emitted into the atmosphere from gas-fired mowers and blowers.
Artificial grass installation is a simple way for Fresno homeowners to do their part in helping the world around you, plus your outdoor space will look spiffy all year round. Here are just a few ways synthetic turf will improve your quality of life and reduce your carbon footprint.
Real grass needs constant watering to remain lush and green. Water can be scarce during the Summer months in California which means your lawn will suffer. Switching to synthetic grass almost eliminates your outdoor water usage, saving thousands of gallons of water.
Commercial landscaping is a big culprit of water consumption and much of that water has been contaminated with chemicals due to pesticides in soil. Synthetic turf is never toxic. It doesn’t attract any pests, weeds, or bugs, so there is no need to use dangerous or life-threatening chemicals. You end up protecting your drinking water, pets, and family.
Grass clippings are one of the main sources of waste that clogs landfills and recycling facilities. You won’t have to worry about this with SYNLawn Fresno products since no mowing or other maintenance is required.
We know that when fertilizers, pesticides, and weed killers are used, most of the product soaks into the ground and contaminates the water supply. Lawnmowers and blowers are also large pollutants. The use of these fossil fuels emits greenhouse gases which contribute to the greenhouse effect by absorbing infrared radiation and carbon dioxide.
