Okay so I may not be a tree-hugging, live without modern conveniences kind of gal, but I try to contribute my part by recycling everything I can, reprinting on the back sides of paper, buying products made out of recycled materials and repurposing old things to find new uses for them (that one’s my fav!). Another way I try to do my part is by incorporating drought tolerant landscaping in my yard, which includes succulents and native plants and UC Verde Buffalograss! Do your part to help conserve water and protect the environment by learning more about what you can do!

- Did you know that the National Wildlife Federation states that approximately 50-70 percent of our residential water is used for landscaping, most of it to water lawns, which total approximately 20-30 million acres in the United States.
- Did you know that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that nearly 70 million pounds of active pesticide ingredients are applied to suburban lawns each year, helping to make polluted runoff the single largest source of water pollution nationwide.
- Did you know that the EPA also states that the use of gas-powered lawn mowers contributes five percent of the nation’s air pollution. A gas-powered lawnmower emits 11 times the air pollution of a new car.
UC Verde Buffalo Grass addresses all of these concerns requiring 75% less water, with a dense canopy that lowers the need for insecticides and herbicides and a lower maximum height requiring less or even no mowing if you choose so!
