County Supervisor Dave Roberts of Solana Beach believes in turf talk

County Supervisor Dave Roberts and Turf Evolutions owner Shannon Beck.

To set an example during the statewide drought, San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts has replaced his lawn with artificial turf.

“We’re in a drought, and I think everybody should do their part,” said Roberts, who sits on the board of the San Diego County Water Authority. “This was our next step in reducing our water usage.”

Roberts and his partner, Wally Oliver, kicked off the five-day project Sept. 15 when workers began tearing up the 6,000-square-foot lawn at their Solana Beach home and replacing it with artificial turf.

Because artificial turf reduces water use by about 44 gallons per square foot, Roberts and Oliver expect to save about 264,000 gallons of water each year.
