1. California Is In a Drought

As you already know, California is in the middle of a terrible drought. California citizens of all ages and backgrounds are expected to be more responsible with their water usage. You can do your part in a big way by getting rid of your grass. It might seem like a huge sacrifice, but the benefits are hard to ignore. Keep reading to discover why this move will do you a lot of good in the long run.

2. It’s Easy To Maintain

Keeping a lawn healthy and lush is quite a process. You throw many hours into cutting the grass, watering it, etc. However, if you don’t have any grass, you don’t have to work as hard. If you replace the grass with stones or artificial turf, you cut your chores in half. This leaves you free to spend time with your family, run errands, and perform a variety of other tasks.

3. You Use Less Water, So You Have a Smaller Utility Bill

Do you have a tight budget? When you invest in drought-tolerant landscaping, you have one less expense.

4. There Are Many Decoration Options at Your Disposal

Think you’re going to be stuck with an ugly yard when you replace your lawn? Think again. There are many decoration options available for your consideration. For example, you can use statues to cover empty patches. Only your imagination could limit the possibilities.

5. You Will Be Forced Out Of Your Comfort Zone

If you stay in your comfort zone for too long, you miss out on many things. Introducing a drought-tolerant yard to your property will force you to get creative and try new things.

6. You Can Keep Wildfires Away From Your Property

If you feel you still need some greenery around, you can get plants that are fire-resistant. You can place a stone wall around the edges of your land to stop wildfires before they can get to your home.

7. You Save Money Overall

It’s not just about a water bill. You don’t have to purchase fertilizer or seeds – at least not as frequently as before. That is priceless in itself.
