New substitutes for lawns are now available as well. Kurapia, imported from Japan, uses anywhere from 50-60% less water.
Scardino also explains, "[Kurapia] has been known to go without irrigation for 56 days. It's brand new on the market, we're selling that. We're also selling a couple new native varieties to save water as well. It's a ground cover, but it looks a lot like grass, so that's going on the market."
Additionally, all-organic turf colorant is available to spray over lawns to increase aesthetic appeal while cutting back on water. 
Overall, water preservation still needs improvement.
"In fact, grass doesn't waste water, people waste water," Scardino begins. "Last week it was raining and people are watering their lawns still. That's wasting water. You go down the streets and people are watering their sidewalks."
Apart from entirely converting lawns from grass, there are still other ways people can budget their water usage, as long as they know how to water responsibly.
