Artificial Lawn is Greener for Apartment and HOA Landscaping

Its Greener in many ways…….

Some pet friendly communities are looking for ways to become greener by conserving water for there landscaping environments. Depending on your area, reducing your lawn size by 50% for a lawn area of 10,000 square feet can save your hoa community landscaping approximately 175,000 Gallons of water a year, this could have a substantial impact on water savings. When it comes to carbon footprints, there’s simply no comparison between natural grass and Synthetic artificial grass. The preferred type of synthetic turf is 100% lead free and 100% recyclable.

FACT:  To keep lawns green, it takes approximately 685 gallons of water to apply 1-inch of water over 1,000 square feet of lawn annually, most Bay Area lawns require an average of 47” of water per year.


Great for Pet Friendly Communities and high foot traffic areas: Why is Synthetic turf a good landscaping alternative for Pet friendly communities?  "Urine will not damage the lawn and Dogs cannot dig it up, Cleans up easily, Urine drains right through it, does not track mud or grass clippings; it’s a Smart environmental choice that will benefit the community for many years to come, and its resilient to foot traffic" says the HOA landscaping expert.

Installing a Synthetic artificial grass system for apartment landscaping alone can save literally thousands of gallons of water per year. “On an average-sized sports field or large expansive lawn area, that number skyrockets to millions of gallons per year”.

FACT: “The average size lawn uses 56,000 Gallons of water per year”

Every circumstance is slightly different depending on the property’s needs, however generally speaking; most clients want HOA and community landscaping services that can solve their landscaping and lawn problems. Whether it’s Turf damaged by high density foot traffic or Isolated Pet damaged areas, low sunlight areas, local bay area watering restrictions or vertebrate pest problems, synthetic turf options provide the Unique Long term Solution for their lawn challenges.

FACT: “Each year Americans use, 7.8 Billion Gallons of water on their lawns”

It’s good for the environment………

“By choosing to install synthetic turf as part of your condominium landscaping services, you’re becoming a partner in the environmental movement that not only saves clean drinking water, but also contributes so much more”

It’s Even Recyclable…
