Synthetic Turf Saves Water
Every year, Americans use billions of gallons of water in a futile attempt to keep their lawns green, especially during the hot summer months. But what if there was a way to have beautifully lush lawn every day of the year without using a drop of water to keep it looking great?
With Turfscape, it’s not only possible, it’s actually happening for homeowners and businesses around the country. No weeds, no daily or weekly maintenance. No chemicals or pesticides. And no watering.
Access to clean water is becoming more of an issue worldwide. California is in the midst of its worst drought in 60 years. People are becoming more conscious of preserving our precious water assets and that means finding alternatives to traditional lawns.
Turfscape artificial ground cover systems have the look and feel of grass, but retain their appeal for years without the hassles and constant maintenance that grass requires. The company makes products for homeowners who want the look and feel of a beautiful lawn, for business and commercial customers who want to make their offices inviting to employees and customers, and for municipalities that want attractive community spaces without the routine maintenance grass lawns require.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates the average American family uses 400 gallons of water a day. 30% of that is used for purposes outside the home such as watering the grass. Nationwide, that amount to more than 7,000,000 gallons of water a day just to keep the grass green. Then, of course, there are all the chemicals people use to keep it looking that way and the hours spent mowing, raking, and trimming it.
Turfscape makes all that work and water usage a thing of the past. The bottom line is a lot less money spent on lawn maintenance and more available for other things. Turfscape also means more time to spend with family and friends instead of lawn upkeep. The average American spends as much as 65 hours a year just trying to keep the grass looking good. That’s more than 1.5 work weeks. Imagine if you had that much extra time to enjoy life!
Turfscape makes a variety of products to suit every need, and offers green franchise opportunities.
