In response to the ongoing 5-year drought, Gov. Jerry Brown is pushing for permanent water restrictions in California.
This means the brown lawn may be here to stay indefinitely until the drought eases up.
There’s little you can do to maintain a lush green lawn without exceeding the water restrictions, which means your lawn will either remain brown or you will encounter fines from the state for excessive water usage.
There are a few things you can do though.
You could replace your lawn with artificial grass, plant a water wise garden, and add a stone patio or fireplace. We’ve been encouraging homeowners to take matters into their own hands for a while now, and will continue to do so because your lawn and overall landscaping has an impact on the curb appeal and perceived value of your property. If you do place on replacing your natural lawn with drought tolerant landscaping, you should consider looking into the water rebate programs available.
If you’re still skeptical about artificial lawn, take a look at some of the ways artificial grass can improve your home.
Don’t let your property suffer from the 5-year drought any longer.
