After complaints that residents and businesses are not allowed to have artificial grass installed on front lawns, the city of Sacramento may consider changing that rule.
The drought is having many considering tearing out their dry, brown grass for the artificial stuff. However, Sacramento's city code specifically says that's not allowed.
Family law attorney Sally Callahan told News10 she was considering artificial grass for her law office, however her contractor told her the city would not allow it.
"I think the city should consider it because it's truly water saving and it's beautiful if it is done right," Callahan said.
In Sacramento, artificial turf can only be installed for backyards, while other neighboring cities, such as Roseville, allow it for both front and back lawns.
The city says it is looking at the option, among others, as a grass replacement alternative.
