As you drag the garden hose out of the garage and fire up the lawn mower this spring in the seemingly never-ending quest for a greener, more perfect lawn, consider these facts: 50 to 70 percent of home water is used on the lawn and garden, and a typical suburban lawn consumes 10,000 gallons of water a year, above and beyond rainfall.

What's more, homeowners will use 800 million gallons of gas this year to mow their yards. And many will apply toxic chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides to make their lawns greener.

If you're looking for an eco-friendly, more manageable alternative without giving up the look of a lush yard, SynLawn might have the answer. The Orlando, Fla., company manufactures six varieties of synthetic grasses that have a natural look and feel.

Synthetic Bluegrass (available in two types), Rye, Fescue, St. Augustine and Centipede grasses provide homeowners with a choice of blade types, shades, textures and prices. All varieties are made from a combination of renewable resources, recovered post-industrial materials, and recycled, postconsumer waste. They're attached to a backing that uses BioBalance polymers, as well as a nonwoven secondary backing made from 100 percent postconsumer waste.

In regions where water conservation is a critical issue, such as the desert Southwest, SynLawn's artificial grass provides an alternative to xeriscaping, which is the practice of landscaping with rock, gravel and arid-adapted plants. But it also is an option for homeowners who want to cut water bills, and reduce the time and money they spend on their lawns.

In addition to residential lawns, SynLawn can be used as pool surrounds, on playgrounds, for rooftop gardens and even for golf greens.

SynLawn currently is available at retail locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and British Columbia. New locations will be added this year in Florida, Texas, Colorado, Utah, New Jersey and Georgia. Prices range from $3.49 to $5.49 per square foot.
