Did you know that millions of gallons of water are dumped into lawns every day, all year long? Also, gas-powered mowers put 11 times more pollution into the air every hour than a car. Then there’s the constant, nerve-racking noise from mowers and blowers. I recently visited a friend where there was a stunning lawn. I assumed their water bill must be very high until the homeowner told me that the lawn was artificial turf. I couldn’t believe how real and beautiful the yard is. She told me not only does it eliminate watering, mowing and chemicals, but it stays beautiful all year long. I think artificial turf is the answer on how to have a beautiful yard while eliminating an environmental nightmare.
