Question: The homeowner's association in my "planned community" does not allow artificial grass in my yard. What are my options?
Global Syn-Turf is the largest artificial grass manufacturer and supplier in the United States with warehouses and distribution centers nationwide.
Answer: You should point the administration of your HOA to a new extension AB 349 of the bill AB 2104 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego. AB 2104 required common interest development to adopt an updated model ordinance regarding water-efficient landscapes that are useful in conserving water. New assembly bill AB 349 prohibits HOAs impose a fine or assessment on separate interest owners for the use of artificial grass or any other synthetic surface that resembles grass unless your homeowner association uses recycled water for landscape irrigation.
"We face a very real water shortage that challenges many of our old habits, and there's nothing fake about our responsibility to find ways to conserve wherever we can," Gonzalez said. "All Californians have tough benchmarks for reducing their water use, and it's our job to make sure homeowners have every opportunity to achieve the conservation we need."
At the time of California historic drought, this act is an urgency
statue shall go into immediate effect. Numerous homeowner associations discriminated and
fined homeowners who attempted to replace their water-thirsty lawns with synthetic grass.
Morrison Ranch Estates Homeowners' Association
fined Agoura Hills homeowner, Greg Greenstein who replaced the grass on his property with artificial grass in his effort to conserve water, with more than $4,000 and demanded to remove the new lawn.
Rancho Pacifica, a gated community of multimillion-dollar homes in the hills east of Del Mar, prohibited a retired couple, Brian and Frances Holloway, who live in a palatial 9,000-square-foot Mediterranean to get rid of the water- sucking front lawn. They fine them $50 per day until the lawn removal.
La Costa Valley HOA, Carlsbad, CA turned down Val Buonaiuto, who planned to install artificial grass in his front yard.
In Carlsbad, California James Zemel installed synthetic lawns in his front and backyards. According to
LAtimes he spent $14,000, and his monthly bill has dropped to $38. His water district sent him a thank you letter for his conservation effort. However, his HOA has demanded to remove the grass from his front yard and threaten him with fines and legal action.
Las Costa Green HOA is one of the few in San Diego County that allows fake grass on front lawns. Its resident, Rocky Wilson, grandfathered synthetic turf installation in his home, in 2006.
The first bill didn't include artificial grass as a part of the water-efficient landscape. Gonzales said she held back because of Brown's past opposition to protections. In 2011, the governor said individual HOAs should make the decision, not state government. Residents outside of homeowners associations are free to install fake grass with few, if any, restrictions. But in 2015, California found itself in the fourth year of severe and potentially devastating drought.
Landscape irrigation, according to the Department of Water Resources draws 43 percent of residential water use. The installation of artificial grass, instead of traditional landscapes and lawns, can directly decrease outdoor water use to support the Governor's mandated 25-percent statewide water use reduction.
During the state of emergency, declared by Jerry Brown on July 1, 2015, homeowners associations are prohibited from
fining and discriminated the members who are installing artificial grass on their front lawns. Throughout California, homeowners are subject to strict water conservation ordinances. While in the middle of a water deficiency crisis, homeowner associations are not allowing members to perform deliberate sacrifices and are still forcing them to keep grass lawns, and
fining them. AB 349 ensures that all homeowners have the right to conserve water by replacing grass with artificial turf.
The bill stated that "Property owners who pursue water conservation should be encouraged, not sued or fined. Thus, this act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety."

Before April 6, 2016, installation of artificial grass was permitted in Glendale, California only in the backyards. Due to severe drought conditions, however, cities cannot ban synthetic turf any longer. Recent AB 1164 legislation, allows installing fake grass on 50% of the Parkway areas. The other half must have live plant material.
In the last decade, artificial grass becomes a new fashion trend in the home improvement industry. It's growing aggressively across the country and specifically in Denver, Colorado. Maintaining a beautiful and healthy lawn in Denver presents an extreme challenge. Most landscaping companies offer programs that consist of at least four treatments per year that include fertilization, pre- and post-emergent weed control (including crabgrass), as well as fungus and insect control.
As many people wait for spring to come, many of the people also are beginning to mow their lawn. Hence, towards the end of the midyear a year ago, homeowner's gas lawn mower had been running rather drowsily. Much like snow blowers, people found that there are two ways you can go when acquiring a lawnmower.
