New reglulations on size of front lawns

Grassclippings - Lawn TreatmentsBAKERSFIELD, CA - Effective today, a new law enacted by Governor Brown's Water Conservation Commission aims to target new home's lawn size.

The new law allows for a maximum of 25%, which is roughly half of a typical landscaped home.

Alternate options will include shrubbery that is more drought-friendly. Irrigation techniques that utilize drip irrigation as opposed to traditional sprinkler heads will help reduce water consumption. 

Developers and home buyers will likely see a higher cost on the front end, but a savings in the long term with water costs. Landscape designers cite water usage may be reduced by up to 50% to 60%, which will ideally help the California drought situation in the long term.
