The use of artificial turf has helped one Florida project in need of some serious green space.
Artificial Turf Supply (ATS) helped the Department of Transportation (DOT) Interchange Landscape Project in Jacksonville, Florida.
The company provided LXR Pro series artificial turf as part of the $2.4 million project to help create a green and sustainable landscaping space on the I-95 and I-10 interchange.
Because of the switch to artificial turf, the DOT of Florida will save up to 80 percent on water utility bills.
Because Florida is experiencing extreme drought conditions, according to the Department of Environmental Protection, it is projected that by 2025, Florida will need an additional 2 billion gallons of water each day.
The turf will also help the area from drainage and erosion problems, and has effective irrigation control with 30 inches per hour drainage capacity.
