Synthetic grass landscapes are being installed at a record pace due to rising water costs and usage restrictions

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After more than 4 years of unrelenting drought, California residents have been converting their lawns to artificial grass in record numbers. Water rate hikes and usage restrictions are also forcing businesses across the state to rethink their landscaping, as perfectly manicured lawns are becoming exceedingly harder to justify. 

Laguna Turf, an artificial grass installation company based in Orange County, has seen unprecedented growth over the past year. "Our workload has more than doubled in 2015, and much of this demand is coming from businesses," said Enrique Tuccio, owner of Laguna Turf. "They're finally starting to see just how costly and wasteful their natural grass landscaping can be."

One of Tuccio's latest projects was Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, a job that consisted of converting over 17,000 square feet of natural grass into Diamond Light Fescue, an artificial grass line from Synthetic Grass Warehouse. "This was actually the second phase of the project," Tuccio explained. "We installed another 17,000 square feet for them just a couple years ago, so they've removed around 35,000 square feet of natural grass so far." The impact on water consumption for this job alone is hard to dispute. With live grass consuming about 55 gallons per square foot annually, Sony Pictures' decision to go with artificial grass will save almost 2 million gallons of water per year.

When asked about Laguna Turf's relationship with Synthetic Grass Warehouse, Tuccio answered, "SGW has always played a huge part in our growth. These guys have always gone above and beyond to get me what I need for my clients, and in my opinion, they have the best products." Laguna Turf has purchased its artificial turf from SGW for over 5 years, and was recently recognized by SGW as their certified "Installer of the Month".
