So in preparation of summer, we have been
fixing up the back yard. My dog did a number
on my yard in the past 10 months. we had
no grass left from all the digging , lots of
trees were chewed down to stubs, basically it
looked like a battlefield.
Every year, we usually put down new sod
but this time we did something a little different...
do you notice anything unusual in these pictures?
no? good. That is synthetic grass you see!
yes, I spent months deciding and choosing
which one to have installed.
I can not tell you how happy I am and
I wish we did this sooner!
I swear it looks real and the benefits are
less water consumption, no yellow pee stains
from the dogs (even though I am keeping them
off it) and it stays that vibrant green all year.
It does get a little warm in the sun so I just ordered
2 new umbrellas for the back yard, but if it gets too hot you can
just run the hose over it for a few seconds and it
totally cools off. I ordered it from Home Depot,
but first I ordered the sample kit so I could see
which one worked the best. The final product was delivered
to my house and my wonderful gardener installed
it. Very, very easy. I would recommend it
to anyone who has pets and not a big back yard.
I am noticing more and more people installing
synthetic grass, and now I know why!
