While the state of California is experiencing the serious water drought, Beverly Hills residents are facing the reality of cutting down their water usage as much as by 35%, in light of the governor of California, Jerry Brown, mandate. The state promises to fine water wasters as much as $1,000 per day.

According to Areavibes, the medium housing values in Beverly Hills is $2,703,500 and is 604 percent higher than in California. The cost of living is twice higher than in the state on average. Beverly Hills has 2,481 backyard pools, which is the most pools per capita. It has one of the highest rates of water usage too, 216.6 gallons a day per resident (September, 2014), compared to 70 gallons in Los Angeles. Residents of Santa Ana, for example, use only 38 gallons of water a day.

Local authorities prohibited the draining and refilling pools, and required all pools be covered to lessen evaporation. Outside watering is restricted to two days a week. It seems that "the land of the sunshine, swimming pools, palm trees and movie stars" stands a chance to choose the alternative way and join the nation conservation effort. If not for the hard-to-replace swimming pools, the simplest and the most efficient drought solution is to change the way of our landscape.

Transforming lawns into a beautiful oasis with lush and natural looking grass is much easier than changing people's expectations of how the landscape must look like. Artificial grass technology allows us to live the lifestyle we seek despite the climate change and drought conditions.

People and the media tend to blame the upscale communities for the "moral isolation of the rich." But when you see beautiful tranquil front and backyards of Beverly Hills, take a closer look. Artificial grass is installed throughout the city, and while it looks just like a regular landscape, as a fact, most of it is synthetic.

Sports fans are conscious of the benefits synthetic turf provides on a playing field, but thats not the only place artificial grass can be used effectively. Artificial turf, drought-tolerant lawn alternative, offers beautiful curb appeal and relaxing spot for family, guests, and pets.

The idea of decorating rooftops with solar panels has been around for a while, but an international team of scientists came up with a new concept of using artificial grass to generate energy. Apparently, synthetic fibers can work as a miniature wind turbine, producing power for the home with every breeze.

The turboelectric generator (TENG) uses strips of artificial grass to generate an electric current. One side of a fiber blade can be coated with nanowires while the other with indium tin oxide. As the wind blows, fibers come into a contact with each other. It allows electrons to pass from one piece of grass to the next, generating an electric flow.


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.


Beyond the Bad Lawn Day: Not Enough Water Can Cause Brown Spots!

Brown sport are not fun for something that must look attractive! Take a lawn, for example. Do you know how much water it needs a year to stay green? What can happen if your lawn turns brown? Hot South Western States such as California, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma have no luxury in water abundance. With increasing temperature, we must cut our water use or we get fined! What a unpleasant reason to get brown spots!

Traditional lawns are not just a style. It's a lifestyle. We use fertilizers to keep them green and beautiful, claiming we love all natural. We use chemicals and poison water, land and living organisms. It's time to change our approach to gardening.
