Turf War At The Bay Area Largest Water Agency

Tor Mclean, the resident of Lafayette, California, solved the California historic drought issue at his own backyard. He tore away his water-thirsty lawn and turned it into a beautiful, eternally green retreat that requires zero maintenance and lowers approximatly 70% of his monthly water bill. Plus, he is getting a rebate from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to decrease the cost of transition. 

"I want it look pretty. I want it look good, " -said Tor Mclean. "Don't have to spend a lot of money on it, and conserve water. No matter if the drought is over or not," - he said, "this project is going to stay." 

Abby Figueroa, the East Bay Municipal Utility District, told ABC7 News that the agency planned the cap up to $2,500 in cash rewards to homeowners who are switching to the drought-tolerant natural plants. They might extend rebates to those who go with artificial grass with a cap of $1,200. But California Redbud, Cleveland Sage and Cofee Berry, though look decent on the front lawns, can't replace traditional California backyards, the place for kids to play and for adults to enjoy the 4th of July barbeque. But not everyone is happy. 

As a continuous effort to minimise the plastic waste, the Alameda County public recycling agency, sent a letter in protest to Est Bay Mud. "This stuff has no place to go after its useful life other than a landfill, and people may install it and send it to landfill a few years after the drought is over," Stop Waste spokesperson Gary Wolff said.

But the question is: will the drought be over in a few yeas? Artificial grass life expectancy under regular traffic is at least twenty years. Most Californians realize that no matter what agencies say, July 1 water price increase is just a beginning. 

EBMUD raised water rates three years in a row. Someone has to pay for aging infrastructure, and this someone is California residents. Last year, Abby Figueroa mentioned that increasing water prices are "politically challenging." Now, when the California drought got to the catastrophic stage, it is time to invest in a new technology, and it will affect the cost of every household in the state. 

"The drought has been the main drive in the industry.  People look for the alternatives to their real sod," - said Andrew Gao, Global Syn-Turf's CEO, in his interview with Cornell Barnard, ABC7 News. 

As Cornell Barnard mentioned on air, the artificial grass business is booming.  "Grass is always greener at Global Syn-Turf. The demand is so high for the fake grass they make it's been hot for their business for the last two years." 

Most synthetic turf manufacturers in the United States have a challenging time to keep with growing demand. Some of them have at least three months in back orders.

California Cities Penalizing Citizens For Not Watering Their Lawns?!!

outdoorcarpet California Cities Penalizing Citizens For Not Watering Their Lawns?!!

Battling with one of the most damaging droughts on history and confronted by mandatory water cuts, many California state citizens are deciding to allow their rich, green lawns simply turn brown, and consequently dealing with financial penalties for it.

After hearing some reports that certain cities have fined their residents for letting their lawns turn to brown in the event of the drought , the California state Assembly passed a bill Thursday that prohibits fees and penalties for residents who decide to not water their lawn, the Los Angeles Times reports. "If California state is likely to administer its water resources resourcefully and sustainably, in that case we must not permit municipalities to penalize individuals for conserving water by not consistently watering their lawn ," assemblywoman Cheryl R . Brown ( D-Rialto ) said. A large number of California state cities possess maintenance ordinances indicating the condition wherein residential laws should be kept. As reported by the LA Times, financial penalties when dealing with these ordinances start out at about $100 a week to a flat fee of $500.

On April 1, Governor Jerry Brown declared the state's first-ever mandatory water cuts , needing the state to help reduce its water usage 25 % by February 2016, a move that probably would conserve some 500 billion gallons of water.

California's water resources are broke up among environmental uses, for example, water in protected rivers and streams, or water put aside for preserving habitat - and also agricultural and urban uses. Environmental necessitates require 50 % of the state's water, with cultivation accounting for 40 %. Urban utilization clocks in at only 10 %. Within that 10 %, outdoor residential water, the water utilized in swimming pools and landscape irrigation - is the primary important use, accounting for 34 % of the state's entire urban water utilization. As emphasized by the University of California, a lawn is "almost constantly the single largest user of water at home landscape", a 500-square-foot grassed area can use a lot more than 18, 000 gallons of water annually.

In April of 2014, Gov. Brown finalized an executive order mandating that homeowners' associations should not fine individuals for failing to water their lawns. But nevertheless particular homeowners' association guidelines can continue to make water conservation measures challenging for homeowners, something that a resident of Southern California, Greg Greenstein, states that have been happening to him.

As reported by KLTA5 News in Los Angeles, Greenstein changed his home's grass with artificial turf in January with a purpose to conserve water. Since that time, he claims to have accumulated over $4, 000 in penalties from his homeowners' association, which states the replacement was made without appropriate architectural authorization. When Greenstein declined to remove the turf, the homeowners' association started penalizing him $50 each and every day. 

The homeowners' association argues that Greenstein wasn't fined for having turf, however for installing it without prior authorization. Greenstein's homeowners' association enacted a prohibit on artificial turf on front lawns in 2008 and declared that right now there wasn't enough interest to alter the rule when the association recently reconsidered it. The state Assembly's bill trying to prevent cities from leveraging penalties on inhabitants with brown lawns passed 74 to 0, and right now would go to the state Senate for a consideration.

Lawmakers are likewise thinking about a bill that probably would avoid homeowners' associations from prohibiting homeowners to put in place turf as a water conservation measure.

Fake Grass Ban in Sacramento No Longer Enforced

outdoorcarpet Fake Grass Ban in Sacramento No Longer Enforced
Why is fake grass still illegal in certain California cities? In Sacramento for instance fake grass is prohibited in front lawns and has been so since 1984 when fake grass hadn't progressed to the point it has now. Back then, it looked tacky, but now it's virtually indistinguishable from real grass. It even has the brown thatching underneath the fibers. But now Sacramento's ban is no longer enforced. Sacramento District 4 Director Consuelo Hernandez has stated that "Currently artificial turf is prohibited by ordinance, however, given the current drought situation, it's not being actively enforced. Residents are not required to have live turf in their front yard under city code, but if they want to deviate they can put in half concrete or rock or paver-type materials and half live vegetation such as shrubs, plants, trees. Again, if they install artificial turf in the front yard, which at this point there have only been a few homes doing this the last couple years, code is not being enforced." Further, Sacramento City Council Member Steven says that he's actively trying to get fake grass legalized for front yards too.  Just one more indication that fake grass will soon be accepted not only by city officials, but by popular opinion as well. ...

Amazon Now Sells Landscape Services

outdoorcarpet Amazon Now Sells Landscape Services

Amazon.com, electronic commerce company, has expanded its services to include connecting homeowners with landscape contractors.

The site, Amazon Home Services, launched earlier this month and allows based businesses to sell their services through the website. It may be in the very near future when artificial grass installers, too, are connected to homeowners looking to save money and water on their lawn care through Amazon's new portal.

Amazon is already a seller of physical products, artificial grass being one of them, but now they're trying to make way into the services marketplace, competing with such companies like TaskRabbit, Angie's List and Uber.

For example, for roughly $120 you can have your lawn mowed by an Amazon-approved lawn maintenance contractor; and if you live in the appropriate service area, you can have your goat grazed it you so fancy. Amazon's revenue model is that it takes a percentage commission from all of the services sold through their site: 20 percent from the sale price of standard services, and 15 percent from custom services. Will Amazon become the go-to website for artificial grass installers to connect with potential clients? Perhaps.

Artificial Grass is the Lawn Surface of the Future

outdoorcarpet Artificial Grass is the Lawn Surface of the Future

Immediately following Governor Jerry Brown's announcement that a 25% reduction in California's water usage is mandated, a good number of residents and homeowners in California agree that the state's approval of artificial grass is the beginning of a larger wave to come in the future. During his initial announcement, Governor Jerry Brown stated that the idea of having a nice little green grass lawn getting watered every day is a thing of the past.

The California Water Resources Control Board is scheduled to release its proposal for how they will achieve a 25% reduction in two weeks. The restrictions are to take effect on June 1, 2015. Many are now not only open to but keen on converting their lawns to artificial grass.

One homeowner in Orange County, for instance, says that she and her mother have been living in a house with a real grass lawn fo 60 years. But as they went shopping this weekend they walked by an artificial grass supply store and her mother declared that artificial grass is the yard surfacing material of the future. Both she and her mother are open to installing artificial grass if keeping their current real grass lawn becomes unsustainable.

However, she said that she and her mother are not willing to go so far as to install drought-tolerant xeriscaping like cacti, etc., in their yard, because it doesn't provide the functionality that a fake grass lawn provides as far as being a suitable surface for the kids and the whole family to play and supporting physical activities.
