Yards provide a safe and enjoyable place for families, their children and pets to play.  These living landscapes also provide a host of health and environmental benefits.

Did you know? — A 50’ X 50’ turf area produces enough oxygen to meet the daily needs of a family of 4.

But in regions affected by the drought, it has been suggested that homeowners and communities remove the grass and replace it with rocks, mulch, catci and artificial grass.  These changes can do more harm than good.  Homeowners, children and pets can enjoy their backyard during a drought and be good environmental stewards with drought-tolerant plants and grasses.
