If you live in a dry or desert climate, perhaps a natural green lawn isn’t an option for your landscaping. An option is to build a landscape plan using a combination of local vegetation and artificial turf.
This plan will serve several purposes:
Water will be conserved. Chances are you are already in a conservation-minded area and saving water could be a local law.
Maintenance will be reduced. Less water, fewer days of raking, no mowing mean less hours of taking care of the space.
Beauty will be enhanced. Using local plants and materials along with accents of turf, can make for a beautiful area.
