Save Time, Money and Water

Positioning properties to use less water can produce other, more significant savings of both money and time. In fact, Consumer Reports included “thinking beyond grass” among its top 10 landscaping money-savers in 2009.

Replacing lawns with alternatives can:

  • Save $1000 to $2000/year in labor, or approximately 76 hours of your time, per 1000 square feet of landscape
  • Reduce dump fees by up to $1500/year per 1000 square foot.
  • Eliminate fuel and mower maintenance costs.
  • Prevent hundreds of dollars in water consumption fees and raised rates.
  • Reduce the energy needs of nearby buildings, particularly when compared to xerscape or synthetic lawn alternatives that create heat islands.
