I know we have had several good rain events during the past few weeks. According to the Dallas News, after a summer of unexpected storms, significant water conservation and a strong chance for average rainfall in winter and spring, it seems that drought plagued North Texas was looking at better water times ahead – and more lawn watering. However, that’s not true…..September water levels set a new record at Dallas/Fort Worth with just a trace of rain. Water levels at key reservoirs dipped lower and some, including Lake Ray Hubbard, reached the lowest level ever. Moisture was so low that Tarrant County went under an outdoor burn ban, the first since January 2013. Even the hope of El Nino, a weather pattern in the Pacific Ocean that often means wetter than normal weather across Texas, has so far shown no significant rain in our area. So what can we do to keep our lawns and business areas green with grass and not worry about water shortage? Consider artificial turf. It looks lush and beautiful all year long, without the worry of watering and maintenance. Compared to natural grass, artificial turf is affordable for our water shortage area. Why don’t you give the professionals at Synthetic Grass Pros a call and let them show you the many benefits and affordability of replacing your natural grass with today’s beautiful artificial turf.
