Located in North Texas, Dallas – and its neighbor Fort Worth – make one of the largest, and fastest growing, cities in the state.
Dallas is the type of city that people love to flock to. Perhaps this is because of the immense melting pot that makes up this city. Or maybe it is the eclectic international cuisine, the multicultural residents, or the fact that it has one of the largest urban art districts in the U.S. The booming economy of Dallas is home to many big corporations, industries and Fortune 500 companies.
Oddly, however, Dallas is the one of the only major cities in the U.S. that does not reside on or near a body of water. With the summer heat reaching temperatures of over 110 degrees and little rain, the lack of a close water supply makes water conservation a bit tricky. In fact, Dallas had been in a state of drought for a couple of years, having broken free in 2015.
The city has warned people to not take advantage of this idea and continue to monitor water usage to help prevent future struggles.
Being cognizant of the activities in and around your home can help alleviate some wasting of this precious water.
Take a minute and think about all the ways in which your household could be wasting water. For example, watering lawns during peak heat times, washing cars, long showers, leaving the water running while brushing your teeth, and leaky faucets. Glenn Hager, the Texas State Comptroller, has encouraged residents to continue a watchful eye on the amount of water used. It is a good thing that the residents of this great city are well-informed on how to conserve water.
With the city’s Water Utilities Department not allowing residents to water lawns from 10am and 6pm from April 1 through October 31st – the hottest time of the year – brown lawns are not uncommon. No need to feel bad, it is common to want a beautiful green lawn, despite water concerns. A well-manicured lawn adds a finishing touch to a home. You work hard for your home. Whenever it needs a repair, you are sure to take care of it.
So, of course it is a difficult situation when the city’s climate and the city officials discourage you from maintaining your browning lawn.
Thankfully, there are alternatives. It is possible to have a green lawn, with grass that looks incredibly real, but is made of a synthetic turf. It is a win-win situation in that you will no longer have to worry about contributing to the depletion of the city’s water supply, but you will also be able to have pride in your home – and your surrounding green lawn!
You don’t have to stop with just your grass, either. There are plants, too, that are water-conservation friendly. A few examples are: Lavandula multifida, Agastache rugosa, salvia clevelandii, and lewisia cotyledon (sunset strain). Do a little bit of research on these flowers and you will discover that you won’t be sacrificing beauty for drought-friendly. Pair these with an artificial turf and you could have a well-manicured lawn.
Because an artificial lawn requires no water and no maintenance, you will have a lot of extra time on your hands and money in your pocket. You can then take the opportunity to check out a Dallas Cowboy game, spend a day in the West Village shopping and dining district, or pick up some new boots at Wild Bill’s Western Store.
