Tor Mclean, the resident of Lafayette, California, solved the California historic drought issue at his own backyard. He tore away his water-thirsty lawn and turned it into a beautiful, eternally green retreat that requires zero maintenance and lowers approximatly 70% of his monthly water bill. Plus, he is getting a rebate from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to decrease the cost of transition.

"I want it look pretty. I want it look good, " -said Tor Mclean. "Don't have to spend a lot of money on it, and conserve water. No matter if the drought is over or not," - he said, "this project is going to stay."

Abby Figueroa, the East Bay Municipal Utility District, told ABC7 News that the agency planned the cap up to $2,500 in cash rewards to homeowners who are switching to the drought-tolerant natural plants. They might extend rebates to those who go with artificial grass with a cap of $1,200. But California Redbud, Cleveland Sage and Cofee Berry, though look decent on the front lawns, can't replace traditional California backyards, the place for kids to play and for adults to enjoy the 4th of July barbeque. But not everyone is happy.

As a continuous effort to minimise the plastic waste, the Alameda County public recycling agency, sent a letter in protest to Est Bay Mud. "This stuff has no place to go after its useful life other than a landfill, and people may install it and send it to landfill a few years after the drought is over," Stop Waste spokesperson Gary Wolff said.

But the question is: will the drought be over in a few yeas? Artificial grass life expectancy under regular traffic is at least twenty years. Most Californians realize that no matter what agencies say, July 1 water price increase is just a beginning.

EBMUD raised water rates three years in a row. Someone has to pay for aging infrastructure, and this someone is California residents. Last year, Abby Figueroa mentioned that increasing water prices are "politically challenging." Now, when the California drought got to the catastrophic stage, it is time to invest in a new technology, and it will affect the cost of every household in the state.

"The drought has been the main drive in the industry. People look for the alternatives to their real sod," - said Andrew Gao, Global Syn-Turf's CEO, in his interview with Cornell Barnard, ABC7 News.

As Cornell Barnard mentioned on air, the artificial grass business is booming. "Grass is always greener at Global Syn-Turf. The demand is so high for the fake grass they make it's been hot for their business for the last two years."

Do you prefer real grass or fake grass? It's nature vs. nurture debate of lawn excellence. Do you side with groomed turf grass experts on chemicals, or do you want to do more to fulfill the obligations as a responsible steward of the land?

Time and again, homeowners are warned about the perils of cheap artificial grass - the often-repeated justification for a pricey turf is that synthetic lawn is an investment – and don’t we want to invest in the very best? Synthetic turf sold at different price points, but how do you know if you'll get what you pay for?

Artificial grass has many advantages, but its capacity to store thermal energy is not one of them. Synthetic lawns get too hot to be safe and comfortable according to the study of researchers from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) done in 2006 and 2007. Please, pay attention to the latter. Back in 2006, we had George W. Bush for a president of the United States. .
