Artificial turf |synthetic grass lawns are wonderful in many ways and have become very realistic.  We understand that some Los Angeles homeowners are reluctant to replace their real grass lawns with an artificial turf grass lawn for many reasons.  Some love the smell of fresh cut grass.  Some actually enjoy mowing and lawn maintenance.  Some love having living plants and other organic matter around them.  Some Californian’s simply love their real grass. We admit that we love real grass also, but it must be very well kept.  Most L.A. residents who are reluctant to get artificial turf grass think that artificial turf grass looks too synthetic.  We admit that there are some varieties of synthetic turf / artificial grass that have a shine to the fibers and they do in fact look very synthetic.  Our artificial turf products are as realistic looking as it gets, which is very realistic now.  For most of our customers it’s just not possible for them to maintain a beautiful lawn which is why they call us.  We understand why so many feel reluctant.  Many of our customers have felt this way before they installed a beautiful artificial turf synthetic lawn.  Once they saw their finished installation they found that they made the right choice.

Artificial/synthetic turf grass is a good choice, financially, environmentally, aesthetically, and logically.  Most of Southern California is essentially a desert so getting grass to grow here is unnatural thus an uphill battle.  Call “Frass” Fake Grass today and see why over one thousand home owners have chosen our company, our products, and our people.

Artificial grass / synthetic turf lawns are a cost effective alternative to natural sod grass.  Return on investment is almost certainly realized within the warranty period of the artificial turf grass lawn product.  Artificial/synthetic turf grass lawns can cut your water bill in half, save you on the maintenance costs of a gardener or yard man, possibly save you from installing a sprinkler system, and most importantly add value to your life by giving you a perfectly manicured, maintenance free lawn and leave you with more time to do the things you really enjoy in life.  The initial investment in an artificial turf grass lawn is significantly more than a real grass lawn but it is an investment.  Just as they say, the rich get richer because they are able to make investments in things such as artificial turf grass lawns which really do save the owner money in the long run.  Below is a hypothetical cost effectiveness example of a five hundred (500) square foot artificial turf grass lawn in L.A.
