On May 6, 2016, Clear Blue Commercial hosted a turf conversion event to convert 16,000 square feet of water consuming lawn into drought-friendly, water-saving landscapes to save 400,000 gallons of water per year!
We had some amazing volunteers come out and we thank each and every one of them for their time, hard work, and great company!

Clear Blue Commercial is committed to making the world better one turf conversion at a time. In total, we have now saved over 2.7 million gallons of water annually! Over the next 10 years, that means a total of 27 million gallons of water will be saved!
Here is a list of turf conversions, their date, turf converted, and how much water was saved annually:
|Event||Date||SF* of Turf Converted||Gallons of H20 Saved Annually|
|Lawn Be Gone||5/6/2016||16,000||400,000|
* Square Feet
It takes a whopping 25 gallons to irrigate only one (1) SF of lawn per year. That’s a lot of water! With the “brown is the new green” trend in Sonoma County and the entire State of California, it’s time to make things a little browner around here.
We had a very successful time hosting our first Turf Conversion of 2016 and look forward to hosting more so stay posted and follow us on social media so you don’t miss an opportunity to help out!
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for this and other events in the past:
