Water Use

People are in the mindset that lawns require a lot of water in order to thrive. They do not. Most lawns significantly recover in the fall even after the dry summers. With proper preparation grass types can be among the most efficient water-users in gardens.


In the past, some harmful chemicals were utilized. Nowadays, turf professionals employ safer chemicals, and use them with attention. The majority of homeowners use little or no toxic products on their lawns.


Lawns play an important part in the recreational activities. Lawns are also a benefit in that during droughts where there is very little or no water, they typically endure, even if they’re inexpensive to replace.

Lawns are regarded as having heavy water use. If excessive amounts of water are being applied to lawns, it could be due to the fact that we’re not properly educated about the amount of water needed to sustain a lawn.
