Artificial Grass

Here in San Diego, water is getting more and more expensive. I am thinking about installing artificial grass with a few drought resistant plants. Long term how durable is the artificial grass? Will it always stay green?

This past week I have been removing portions of my lawn and replacing it with decorative rock and drought resistance plants (Las Vegas). The water authority came out for a survey to remove the grass. They will pay me $2.00 per square foot of turf removed.
I considered a portion of artificial grass for the dog area. I was told that the heat; makes this material to hot for pets and they won't use it. I kept one area of turf.
Builders can no longer install turf due to water restrictions and they are now installing artificial turf.
I do see this material and it looks nice. You will need a weed blower to keep it clean from falling leaves and other debris.
A local company has 7 collections and 26 styles of grass. You can read about it here.

Yes, the water situation is terrible here in So. Calif, and will get worse.
But it's much better, aesthetically and environmentally, to install a xeriscapic (water-saving) landscape. Here in Santa Monica, the City actively encourages going down that road, and offers advice and demos.
Check with your local government. I bet you will find advice and assistance in designing a xeriscapic landscape that you will be proud of -- and set a good example for the neighbors..
