There are certain types of climates where grass grows well, and Orange County is one of them provided that you can water the grass as much as it needs to be watered. This is only an issue during drought times, due to the fact that water is generally affordable to everyone who owns a home. Water is generally plentiful and cheap, and as a result can be used to provide nourishment to all kinds of landscaping plants used to beautify a yard, including plants that would not survive without the artificial water. The perfect weather conditions have lead most home owners to go down the road of using plants which would not survive without artificial water supplies in their landscaping, in order to create a more lush look that Orange County has become known for. The problem happens when there is not enough water in reserve due to drought conditions that happen from time to time, and then home owners are not allowed to legally provide enough water for these plants to do well. Without the adequate water they need, grasses and other plants quickly turn brown and might even die.
This problem has lead many home owners in Orange County to consider another option that can beautify their yards and be safe from all types of drought conditions. Through the installation of artificial turf and water smart landscaping, a home owner can create a lush looking lawn that requires no watering in order to stay green and beautiful. While the lure of real grass might be one that is tough to shake off, the issues of drought always remain and cannot be predicted. Essentially, the repairs to a natural lawn that one might undertake in the winter may be completely in vain the following summer, if the drought conditions continue. After a while of going through these cycles, smart home owners realize that there is a better way. Artificial turf has been improved over the years to the point of being nearly indistinguishable from real grass, and because it needs no watering it is viewed as far superior by many.
Another benefit to artificial grass over real grass is the lack of necessary maintenance. Many home owners today are quite busy, and would rather not spend their weekend time mowing and caring for a lawn enough to keep it nice looking. This means that you are going to have to hire a landscaper and pay them monthly to mow your lawn and care for the plants. These bills can add up to far more over time than the cost of the installation of artificial turf, which should need almost no care after it is installed. You might need to hose it off every now and then just to remove any debris that has settled on it, but other than that there is almost nothing necessary for it to stay looking good. This clean and care free method of improving your yard is growing in popularity, and saving water at the same time.
