Synthetic Turf is emerging as one of the hottest commodities around, and it’s easy to see why: with the advent of new turf technologies in the last couple of years, it’s becoming apparent that the line between artificial and real grass is blurring more and more each day.
Home owners nowadays want water-less grass solutions that will not burn a hole in their wallet and will preserve the look of a perfectly maintained lawn year-round. An article in the Los Angeles Times written by Debra Prinzing explains how Jennifer Gilbert Asher, co-owner of Terra Trellis in Los Angeles, transformed her sod yard with artificial grass:
“(Jennifer Gilbert Asher) also wanted to remove the lawn in the backyard, which had a sunk-in-grass swimming pool. “The surrounding grass was part of the design, but we never watered it, so it looked like an abandoned yard,” Asher said.
She decided to check out Artificial Grass Liquidators in Woodland Hills. “Normally, remnants cost between $3 and $10 per square foot,” she said. “The day I went there, they had an entire football field of artificial grass for $1 per square foot.”
Asher went with the high-quality sports turf. After removing the dried-out grass, she leveled the area and spread sand over the soil. Then she cut the artificial turf to fit and used sod nails to anchor it in place.
Now the Asher family’s frontyard is covered in pine mulch and the backyard has a new, albeit artificial, carpet of lawn.”
As one can see, turf is becoming a mainstay in people’s lawns, especially with the looming drought and rising water costs. Thank you to Jennifer Gilbert Asher and the Los Angeles Times for bringing AGL to the forefront of the artificial grass movement.
