A water balloon fight or even sipping a cool glass of ice water on a hot day isn’t a big deal in most of the country. California residents however have a different view of these activities. In their drought-stricken cities, water is a precious commodity. The extended drought has towns imposing mandatory restrictions on residential water use. Take a look at how far Californians are going in order to conserve water.
If you’ve seen a green lawn in California recently, the color isn’t natural. Homeowners are increasingly opting for artificial turf in lieu of browned grass. Astroturf has come a long way since the 1970s. It is now available in multiple grass heights and two-toned muted greens that closely resemble a natural lawn. Another advantage is the minimal upkeep required. Periodic sanitization of the water-permeable surface and occasionally using a stiff brush to revive the flattened areas are all it takes to keep artificial turf looking great.
