In communities where there are water restrictions, replacing your water-loving lawn with artificial turf is one eco-friendly way to save water. But shopping for artificial grass lawns can reveal a high sticker price, even if there are long-term savings in water (and maintenance). If you're in the market for artificial grass, consider looking for recycled grass material. Companies across the country salvage artificial turf from indoor soccer and outdoor football fields, which they retrofit for the residential market. The reused turf is about 80 percent less expensive, and it looks and feels just like brand new artificial grass.
