A Way To Save Both The Environment And Your Wallet

A Way To Save Both The Environment And Your Wallet

The 4th of July is once again upon us, which means most of us are going to be grilling, taking a dip in the pool, and just generally enjoying the outdoors in general. One thing that is different this year is costs – inflation has spiked hard over the last year, meaning your patriotic party is hitting your wallet quite a bit harder than it was last year.

Another recent change I noticed while driving east into the Inland Empire was just how intensely dry everything has gotten. It felt like a few short weeks ago you could drive through the hills on the 133 and still find plenty of wild mustard, green and in bloom, all of which has given over to dead and dry vegetation.

California is in one of the driest points in its recorded history, with the last 21 years containing more extreme drought conditions than ever before. If that weren’t bad enough, many scientists think that this may become a permanent condition for the state, with aridification accelerating due to changes in the global climate.

With water becoming scarcer, that means increased costs associated with bringing it to the average homeowner. Inflation takes many forms, and increases in prices for basic utilities are one of its direr symptoms.

Many homeowners are therefore looking for solutions that can help conserve what little water we have and shave off some of those monthly costs. One of the easiest is simply replacing their lawn with synthetic grass.

While synthetic turf has gotten a bad rap over the years, the pros far outweigh the cons. Not only does it completely cut the wasteful expenditure of water, but the product has also improved so much over the years that it can be difficult to differentiate from the real thing – as long as the installation is done correctly.

The company you choose to perform your installation can completely transform your yard into a permanently green slice of heaven or the slightly embarrassing section of your home you don’t like guests venturing. That’s why we always recommend our readers look up NoMow Turf, one of the quickest rising companies in the biz here in Orange County.

A quick Google search gives you plenty of glowing testimonials, including these:

I had reached out to several companies and most would not even take the project because it was such a small area. We see so grateful to have found NoMow Turf and work with Patrick, Sierra, and the guys to help beautify a patch of dying grass we had in the front of the house. We received responses from our initial inquiry very quickly and the booking process was very easy. Great communication, great job well done, and the turf looks like the real deal! Look no further, this is the company you want to work with!

I recommend this company to anyone looking for quality Turf work. My wife and I had a budget to get turf installed in our yard, however our budget was nowhere near actually what it costs, we had to adjust our budget after 4 quotes, all being pretty equal in costs. My wife was the one meeting with the representatives of each company and others seemed to be more like “salesman” and not about what we wanted, NoMow turf was opposite and actually sat with my wife and showed her the process, showed her samples, and went over costs and let US choose what we wanted, never did they try and push unneeded items or up sell more expensive turf. Upon choosing this company and contracting the work, it was scheduled in a timely fashion. The crew showed up and worked hard in the heat, my wife supplied plenty of water to keep them hydrated. They were professional and thorough and our yard looks amazing. Thanks for all your hard work and making my wife happy.

Real grass does nothing for your home except suck up hundreds of gallons of water and burn a huge hole in your pocket. If you’re looking to ditch your natural lawn and get fake grass in your Orange County home, give NoMow Turf a call.

Inspiration Can Strike Suddenly

Inspiration Can Strike Suddenly

For many of us, 2020 was a year of languish, with much of the time spent staring off into space as emails and IMs poured in from colleagues at work pretending that they were still busy. You knew they weren’t busy, they knew they weren’t busy, but the illusion had to be maintained or peopleContinue Reading

The Lawncare Struggle

The Lawncare Struggle

When I was a youngster living out in the suburbs of east Texas, I distinctly remember a common sight in my backyard: my father, beer in hand, looking out over his carefully manicured lawn in self satisfaction. That satisfaction was ended one year with the appearance of the dreaded patch. For whatever reason, about aContinue Reading

Telehealth Reaches Veterinary Care

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, most hospitals and primary care facilities were beset by a massive wave of cancellations for non-COVID related cases and routine health appointments. The cancellations came from both the patient and provider ends, with patients avoiding health settings that would potentially bring many sick individuals together andContinue Reading

Natural Born Killers

This may sound a bit strange, but I’ve always had something of a fascination with exterminators and exterminator companies, even as a kid. It probably emerged from seeing Men In Black and just reveling in how disgusting the primary antagonist (an alien wearing the skin of a human exterminator) was portrayed. This fascination is mostlyContinue Reading

There are a lot of reasons for getting a divorce, whether it be cheating, domestic abuse, or just irreconcilable differences discovered after years of living together. Often, divorces can be attributed to dire circumstances one or both participants in the partnership are facing, though those circumstances may be temporary.
