Based on these Cypress, California rates, Turf Capitol experts did some math for Cypress, California homeowners based on a 1,000-square-foot artificial turf landscape requirement for a single-family home.
By using data from the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Turf Capitol works from the understanding that each square foot of lawn replaced with synthetic grass results in an estimated 55 gallons of water savings annually. When using this model for determining the future annual water savings from replacing a grass lawn with a 1000-square-foot synthetic grass solution, a Cypress, California homeowner can start with this general equation for looking at savings from a Turf Capitol artificial turf install:
1000 x 55 = 55,000 gallons
55,000 gallons / 748 gallons = 73.5 ccf
73.5 ccf x $___ = $____ (Estimated Annual Savings)
Without a visit and direct survey to determine actual savings to anticipate from a property owner’s monthly bill, it’s hard to land on exact numbers, however, remember Turf Capitol professionals will schedule an appointment to come to your home, discuss installation options and estimate a custom solution tailored to the unique needs of a your property, all at no cost! So call us today and get started.
