Homeowners concerned with rising water costs have better alrernatives to achieve lush, green lawns than ever before, said Charlie Ferer of Paradise Greens in Scottsdale.

"There is no better time to investigate a complete change of landscape. New designs in artificial turf products and services are a viable option as the summer months-and summer water bills-approach," Ferer said.    Compared to the costs of maintaining a traditional lawn, a typical artificial turf installation will recoup the investment four times throughout its 15 year lifespan, said Ferer.

According to research by the University of Arizona, turf and landscape irrigation represent as much as 60% of household water consumption. Those costs continue to rise as water usage increases throughout the southwest in step population growth and development. As a cost-effective alternative, synthetic grasses are popular choices for families who want green and pliable play areas for pets and children, but don't want the maintenance or the expense of turf.

Ferer's company, Paradise Greens, has seen an increase in clients who have children and pets and are looking for artificial grass installations that use improved drainage systems and new, low-cost sanitation plans for synthetic grass. "These are great alternatives for play areas and pet runs because they are soft, stain resistant and safe," Ferer said.

If you are looking to install synthetic lawn, Ferer suggests combining a completely waterless synthetic lawn with xeriscape plantings. This combination eliminates sprinklers which are expensive to maintain and may also qualify you for a water rebate program offered by many cities.
