Gov. Jerry Brown ordered mandatory water use reduction in the state of California for the first time in the state's history. He has ordered the State Water Resources Control Board to restrict water by 25%. This restriction will affect homeowners, who will have to reduce the watering of their gardens and lawns, which are two of the primary sources of water use in the state. Farmers on the other hand will not be affected.

Mr. Brown even went so far as to say that "The idea of your nice little green lawn getting watered every day, those days are past." Further, officials say that they are prepared to enforce the new laws if necessary with fines, etc. The water agencies have been instructed to raise rates of heavy water users and to reward water conservers. The chairwoman of the State Water Resources Control Board said that most of the restrictions will target outdoor uses of water such as watering lawns and gardens.

A good option for those who wish to keep their lush green lawn and still abide by the new water restrictions is to install a synthetic grass lawn. New synthetic grass technologies look just as good as natural grass and are just as functional. Synthetic grass will reduce water usage drastically, and eliminate expensive use of other resources on lawn maintenance. Yes, Mr. Brown is correct, the days of watering your lawn every day are gone; but, thanks to synthetic grass, the days of having a nice green lawn are here to stay.

Water sprinkler, car in water, California water fines

Despite the dry winter, California State Water Resources Control Board and cities representatives support the state water regulators in Sacramento to fine residents up to $500 per water violation. Orginal water rules were set on a temporary basis during the California drought 2014-2017 by Gov. Jerry Brown. Now, according to the water conservation portal, it will, most likely, become a permanent Califonia law.

Despite the drought officially ended by Gov. Jerry Brown, Mediterranean climate in major parts of California remains the same. Water demands in warm, hot, dry summers and mild, moderately wet winters always exceed the water resources. A five-year drought raised concerns. It costs the state economy billions of dollars. It stressed forests and left more than 100 million dead trees behind. But the effects are far more deadly than anyone could imagine.

California doesn't look green anymore. In the historic state of drought, Californian lawns are now on the edge of extinction. Homeowners and communities are continuously looking for alternatives and the artificial grass looks more and more attractive.


The "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart has his own idea of how to solve the California Drought issue.

"First, as you know, California goes through historic unprecedented dry spell. " - says Jon Stewart at Thursday's Daily Show. "We are talking about original movie ideas. BOOM! Take that Jurassic world. Hey, what if they build another dinosaur theme park, but this time things also went horribly wrong."


As a drought becomes a major concern in California, the idea of replacing old lawns with artificial grass becomes more and more attractive to home and business owners. In the interview with Ken Wayne, Fox News, San Francisco, Jim Luthi, the homeowner of Newark, confessed he has bit the bullet and replace the sod with artificial turf: "Thirty something years of having droughts on and off. "
