I had not been a fan of artificial turf... something about it just didn't sit right with me. Perhaps it was too similar to a rug? But now I'm beginning to see the benefits of synthetic grass. It is a great solution for areas where you want and need a surface that can be walked on, stays green and can be used by pets. Due to water restrictions, we are seeing more areas where grass is thinning out and a ground cover or planting bed would not meet the needs of the client. It is also a good application for putting greens and sport areas. We are pleased with the results.
