How Synthetic Turf Can Reduce Your Water Bill
Three hundred and twenty (320) gallons—that’s the daily water use of an average family in the U.S. Further, 30% of that is reserved for outdoor uses, like watering our lawns and gardens to keep them looking green and lush. This can be considerably more if you have a large yard or a business with lots of green space.
In Texas, it’s quite likely that the percentage of water used for watering your lawn is significantly higher. With daily summer temperatures averaging between 85 and 90 degrees in Texas, keeping your lawn in good condition requires large amount of water—costing you more during hotter months. Thankfully, there is an alternative to natural grass that can save you time and money while still maintaining a beautiful green space for your outdoor area.
At Synthetic Greenscapes, our experienced team can work with you to transform your natural lawn using artificial grass. You can create a beautiful greenscape that looks beautiful and lush but is also low maintenance and helps reduce your water bills.
Why It’s Important to Save Water
Saving water saves you money on bills, but it’s also essential for our environment. Water is a valuable resource and one that is running in short supply. Fresh water is needed for everything from drinking and cooking to hygiene and food production. Many people view watering your lawn as a waste of a precious commodity, and why many Texas cities are curbing residents’ outdoor water use.
Other Environmental Benefits of Using Artificial Grass
If you care about looking after the environment, artificial grass also offers plenty of benefits for the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that fertilizers and pesticides are one of the leading causes of water pollution. If you currently use pesticides on your lawn, installing artificial grass can help to reduce the amount of pollution that ends up in our waterways. Polluted waterways can often affect lakes thousands of miles from your home.
Because artificial grass doesn’t require any fertilizers or pesticides to maintain, it’s a better choice to protect waterways, plants, and wildlife.
How Much Can Artificial Grass Save You?
Because artificial grass doesn’t require water to keep it looking green and beautiful all year, your savings on water usage can be substantial. The exact amount you’ll save depends on the size of your yard or space, but the potential long-term savings could be in the thousands—and all by simply replacing your dry natural grass lawn with always green artificial grass.
At Synthetic Greenspace, we specialize in North Texas artificial grass installation. Some state water authorities have indicated that for every square foot of natural grass that’s replaced with artificial grass, you could save 55 gallons of water every year. In Texas, the average yard space is around 2,000 square feet. With this calculation, the average Texan could save 110,000 gallons of water per year by installing artificial grass.
For example, in Fort Worth, using 10,000 gallons of water is likely to cost you around $50 in water bills. Saving 110,000 gallons per year could save you more than $500 each year on your water bill.
Other Benefits of Artificial Grass DFW
In addition to the money you’ll save on water bills each year and positively contributing to saving water for our planet, artificial grass also offers plenty of other benefits.
