More Water Saving Landscaping Ideas

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Is synthetic lawn the answer to the water crisis? I hope not.  While high20150511_105918 (640x480) quality artificial grass has come a long ways, it is very expensive and I have been told that it will absorb pet odors.  I do not know if this information is reliable, so do your own research if you are considering adding it to your yard.  I prefer to see it used in back yards, where is is ideal around pools and for putting greens.  It still looks too artificial in my opinion to be used in front yard landscaping.  It could limit your curb appeal to future buyers.

Enough on fake lawn.  Yards are only of practical value if they have a reason to be used.  Your back yard needs a drawn or it will sit idol 99% of the time.  Instead of pools that are a huge monetary investment,  use a tremendous amount of water and require a lot of maintenance, consider adding an outdoor fireplace or fire pit instead.   It will cost you a fraction of the price of a built in pool.  It requires virtually no maintenance and it looks good 12 months out of the year.  There are many models available at home improvement stores that are portable and look great.

Water Saving Real Estate Tips

Front Yard Landscaping

I recently read a quote “if the only one who walks on the lawn is the person mowing it, you don’t need it”.  I don’t remember where I read this, but it has stuck with me ever sense.  In Rocklin, we are being ordered to reduce our water consumption by 32%.  Lawns are the number one water consumers.  I’ve also read that a lawn will consume for water than a pool of the same size.  So the question is, can we eliminate our lawns without hurting our real estate values.   Yes, it takes some money; but good design can be achieved on budgets big and small.  It takes more imagination and elbow grease on a small budget, but it can be done.

If you are going to talk the talk, then it is important to walk the walk, so I am including pictures of my lawn free home.  I will do more blog posts on home remodeling.  After all, it does fit into my theme of eco-friendly real estate.  Remodeling is a form of recycling and reusing what you already have.  It uses fewer resources than new construction.  The same principle applies to purchasing re-sale homes.  Think of it as the highest form second hand shopping:  reuse.
