Synthetic grass can enhance the attractiveness of your Bay Area home or business. Adding a little patch of green is not as difficult as it seems, and the members of your household will most certainly appreciate it. Artificial grass can offer your family — or your customers, if you’re a business owner — the joys that natural grass is known to present without the inordinate amount of care that the natural stuff requires. An artificial turf patch can go a long way in making a high-trafficked area a lot more pleasant.

The demand for artificial grass for landscaping is growing at 10 to 15 percent per year. This has been stimulated by several factors, including the desire for lower maintenance, an all weather surface, and the recent droughts in the country that have led to a serious water shortage.
Modern artificial turf offers high quality surfaces, a realistic appearance, and long life which is why it makes perfect sense for gardeners who are strapped for time. That’s because artificial grass requires minimal maintenance and frees gardeners to focus on other tasks such as tending to flower gardens, home maintenance, and business. It’s a smart choice that saves both time and water, and it looks good too!
You see it every day, California drought. Hear it everyday, California drought. Sixty percent of California is in “exceptional drought” and unfortunately, it does not appear that there is a high chance of that condition being alleviated this winter.

Increasingly, more property owners have come to appreciate artificial grass for dogs as an alternative to natural grass surfaces. It offers low cost, low maintenance and continuous beauty over conventional grass surfaces, dirt, cement or gravel. In addition to the practical and aesthetic benefits of using synthetic turf, you can be assured that your dog will love the surface just as much as you, because it looks and feels just like real grass, but will not irritate, nick, cut or stick in your dog’s paws. Synthetic turf frees dog owners of the hassles of protecting natural grass, such as when grass dies or turns yellow from urine.
In 1966, the Astrodome made history when artificial turf was installed in the stadium as a solution to replacing dead and painted grass. Since its inception, “Astro Turf,” as it was originally called, has advanced through three generations. The first generation was made up of short-pile fibers without the infill, the second generation included sand infill, and the current and third generation of synthetic turf systems features a combination of sand and rubber infill. With today’s synthetic grass looking and feeling more like natural grass, requiring less maintenance, providing better drainage, and allowing for multi-purpose sports programs, the appeal is evident.
With the intermittent rain the Bay Area has been experiencing, it’s no doubt that the compilation of mud brought in to the house by four-legged friends is causing some frustration by pet owners.
