Our West Coast summers are heating up. As little as a few years ago July and August were BC’s two (and only) peak months of sun and warm weather; it is now normal for the temperature to rise in April.
This also means it’s raining less, and homeowners in the Greater Vancouver region, for the first time since 2003 saw Stage 3 Water Restrictions being implemented last year.
To keep our lawns from using more water than the climate can afford – and without compromising a perfectly manicured state – installing synthetic grass has been a natural alternative that the City of Vancouver, homeowner’s associations and homeowners have turned to.
Here are some facts about water conservation and restrictions in Greater Vancouver:
- Metro Vancouver water restrictions began on May 15 this year – two weeks earlier than last year.
- Lawn sprinkling is currently only permitted every other day per residence.
- In the Americas, 30-60% of urban fresh water is used to water lawns.
Synthetic grass has always been an excellent alternative – but becoming even more so than ever in British Columbia.
