The ongoing drought problem in California in the past few years, we’re now facing the mandatory cutbacks from our Governor Jerry Brown. What can we do to help our environment and our wallet to cope with this tough situation? Our beautiful green lawn is the first one on anyone’s list to have to be taken out of picture. Do we have to lose our beautiful landscaped front or back yards? Not really. Here are the solutions!
1. I can’t live without my green lawn! Do I still have options for drought resistant landscaping?
You won’t believe how many options we have now for the artificial turf. It’s way less time and money consuming than your current grass and yet it can keep your yard looking its best. It requires no water, virtually maintenance free, no chemicals nor fertilizers needed. Can it be any better? Yes, artificial turf is also qualified to have the rebate in most of areas in the Greater Los Angeles.
2. Drought Resistant Landscaping Total Makeover!
If you are ready for a change, why not try to get a whole new makeover on your front or back yard? With the new water restrictions, most of our water supply agencies have come up with variable rebate program to help you on the cost of your landscape project as long as your meet their requirements. For example, LADWP offers California Friendly Landscape Incentive Program for both their residential and commercial customers. The application process is very easy as well.
3. Still want the real living grass?! How about change your irrigation system to Drip Irrigation System?
Forget about your sprinklers. Drip irrigation system is such an efficient way to deliver water to specific areas. It slowly delivers water directly to the soil around the roots. Therefore, very little water is lost from the evaporation or runoff. Of course, that translates the big saving of the greens in your wallet and your lawns.
All above offers great environmental benefits for water conservation. We can think outside of the box and be creative to have our own drought-tolerant yard. Let’s all help California through the water crisis and still enjoy our outdoor living with low-water plants that give our yard an all-season appeal!
