Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
According to Green Planet Grass research, water bills could rise by as much as 30% within the next three years. Due to the current climate and a decreased supply of water, the Western Australia State Government has increased the amounts of desalinated drinking water that they supply to residents. Desalination is expensive, and the Water Corporation has stated its intention to pass the increased costs on to consumers.
Some residents are already struggling with higher bills, and the Water Corporation has reported a 10% increase in customers requesting late payment plans during the last fiscal year.
According to Jeff Dennis, Managing Director of Green Planet Grass, “The numbers don’t lie; our climate is getting hotter and dryer. It’s already expensive to maintain a lawn, but it’s about to become a lot more expensive. Water prices are rising, and it will take more water to maintain a conventional lawn. It’s pretty easy to do the math here, and it isn’t pretty for consumers.”
Green Planet Grass offers consumers a solution to rising water prices: a lawn that doesn’t need water. Synthetic lawns are similar to the artificial turf seen on many sports playing fields, but they are customised for residential use. To most customers, the current generation of synthetic grass looks and feels like real grass. In addition to not requiring water, synthetic grass really doesn’t require much maintenance of any kind.
According to Green Planet Grass, most homeowners recoup their initial investment in synthetic grass in about three years. According to Dennis, “An upfront investment in synthetic grass enables homeowners to save a lot of money on their water bills. It is a rare investment nowadays: the more water prices rise, the more the homeowner saves."
Dennis continued, “It costs a lot of money to keep a lawn looking good. As the climate gets hotter and drier, it takes even more water to keep a lawn from developing brown spots. The great thing about synthetic grass is that it always looks good. It always looks like it has just been cut, watered, and manicured. Our synthetic lawns always look perfect, and they stay that way without costing you time, energy, or money on maintenance after your initial investment.”
Dennis summarised, “Most homeowners will recoup their original investments in less than three years, but the best part is that your lawn just sits there and looks good, year after year, and you don’t even have to do anything to it to keep it that way.”
