The front yard of a Fairway Lawn Service customer on Chamisal Avenue in Los Altos remains green after using Moisture Manager.
With no end in sight to the California drought, Fairway Lawn Service owner Max Todd feared last fall that many of his customers would forgo their seasonal lawn aeration service.
“When it was time to begin our fall service, we were concerned because there had been no rain for months, and many water districts had asked residents to cut back on outdoor watering,” said Todd, a Los Altos native. “We wondered: What if many of our customers had cut back watering to the point that their lawns had died – what are we going to do then?”
