Go Green Without Wasting Water

Published Date: Jun 18, 2024

As the lifeblood of our planet, clean water is essential for nourishment, food production, climate, and even transportation. Conserving it makes sense on all levels, and one extremely efficient way to do that is to stop investing billions of gallons of it on our lawns!

That billions is no exaggeration. Each day, approximately NINE billion gallons of water are used for residential landscape irrigation. This staggering amount is dedicated to maintaining lawns and flower gardens, which are purely seasonal aesthetics. With climate change intensifying, and water resources becoming increasingly strained, it's time to reconsider how we use this invaluable resource.

At System Pavers, environmental responsibility is at the core of our values. On the other hand, we adore beautiful lawns and want everyone to have one they can enjoy daily with minimal upkeep or maintenance - including watering! If you love the look of a lush green lawn when it comes to landscaping and yards, we can help you achieve it with our selection of top-quality artificial turf.

By choosing to replace your water-guzzling grass with eco-friendly synthetic grass, you and your loved ones can enjoy a lush, natural-looking lawn all year round. With no more endless watering or applying toxic pesticides and chemicals to maintain. This means you save resources while also helping to keep community waterways cleaner - a win-win!

While each of our individual home's use of outdoor water might seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the billions used nationwide, it all adds up. That's why states in drought-prone areas like California, Arizona, and Nevada sometimes enact water restrictions for residential use. However it's not just the Southwest that experiences this. It's estimated that at least 40 out of 50 state water managers expect water shortages and below average conditions in some portions of their states in the next few years.

According to the EPA, the average American family uses 300 gallons of water a day and about 30% of that is for outdoor uses such as lawns and gardens, totaling close to 100 gallons. By switching to turf, you can potentially reduce your water consumption by 100 gallons per day. Just imagine the impact it would make if only half your neighborhood did the same thing!

It's easy to see how every raindrop counts toward our quality of life, and with synthetic turf four our lawn and garden areas, you not only preserve water supplies, you get a huge added benefit - more free time!

A recent outdoor landscape design trend that we're really loving is combining artificial turf with patio or pool pavers or surrounding a paver walkway. This creates an infinitely usable space with a well-manicured look that's modern and eye-catching.
