More People Turning to Artificial Turf During Drought

Posted: Updated:

More and more homeowners in Nevada are trading in the sound of lawn mowers for nailing....and sanding...of artificial turf.

"This is our tenth install of artificial turf," said Christopher Roth with Two Crazy Gardeners of Reno. "And since this season began we've only put in two real grass lawns. This is expensive but it pays for itself in about four years and people love them."

Debbie and Tom Foley expect to. They have invested about $7,000 into tearing the grass out of their backyard and installing artificial turf instead. 

"You should have seen this before," Debbie said. "It was all lumpy, It had dry spots in it and we wasted a lot of water trying to bring it back. We've actually replaced this twice and then we decided this was a lot less work and looked a lot better."

Her husband Tom couldn't agree more. 

"No more watering, No more mowing. This is flat and should last longer than we need it," he said.

"I love it. I can't wait for them to finish. It's gorgeous," Debbie added.

They were both smiling today. And they've be smiling again when they get their next water bill.
