Just look at the impact on the environment of upkeep on a traditional lawn. Synthetic grass makes environmental sense!
According to the EPA, over one-third of residential water is used for lawn irrigation nationwide, totaling over 4 billion gallons of water a day. 40-60% of the nitrogen fertilizer applied to natural grass lawns ends up in surface and groundwater, leading to contamination and impaired ecological health in our rivers, lakes, ponds and coastal waters.
According to the EPA, a traditional gas-powered lawn mower produces as much air pollution as 43 new cars driving 12,000 miles. Over 17 million gallons of gas and oil are spilled each year from refueling lawn equipment-that is more oil than was spilled by the Exxon Valdez.
