California landscape management company owners and lawn care contractors and gardeners stand to benefit by adopting artificial grass installation as one of the services they provide to their customers. Artificial grass installations are increasing dramatically and will continue to increase now that Gov.

Jerry Brown has mandated a 25% reduction in water use. This is directed primarily at homeowners who waste water watering their lawns. Many of these homeowners will opt to install artificial grass instead. Jerry Brown has also mandated that 50 million square feet of field turf be replaced with drought tolerant alternatives such as artificial grass. One installer who's seen his business skyrocket is a landscape management company owner in Mill Valley.

He says that business is booming right now and that he feels like a genius for purchasing the artificial grass company in 2010. At first it was supposed to be an auxiliary part of his business but has quickly become one of the primary sources of revenue for his company. Indeed, now is the perfect time to add artificial grass installation to your list of services, as more and more requests start to crop up from homeowners and business looking to retain their green lawns while losing 25% of their water consumption.

Water Laws In California, Police, Illegal, irrigation, sprinkler

There are no signs of severe drought in California this year, but the state legislators continue to move down the road of water wasting mindset prevention. As a reminder to those residents and businesses who have gotten a little lazy and are back to using as much water as before the drought, water legislations are passing on through eight phases of the mandatory water conservation program. It's Murphy's law: "Just when you think things cannot get any worse, they will." But there is also some good news for Californians. Minimum wage is going up to $11-$12 per hour depending on company size. Women are getting more protection. Illegal businesses of the past are making into respected taxpayers.

Christopher Hain, the research scientist of NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, leads a specializes project aimed to predict drought across North America from satellites. In times, when a climate change poses a threat to agriculture, any new way to catch on the drought conditions at early stages sounds just right.

America loves green, lush lawns. Outdoor lifestyle is threatened by severe drought and a climate change. Lawns dry out. Dried earth.

The state of Califonia is currently in its fifth year of severe drought. Despite Governor Brown's declaration of a state drought emergency in 2014, Californias fell short of the mandated water conservation target.
