“I have always had a vision of my dream house,” Annie said. “The cute little cottage, a nice green lawn, and yes, I want a picket fence.” She laughed. “The cottage and the fence I’ve managed to handle, but because of the soil conditions here and my utter lack of a green thumb, we just can’t get grass to grow. We’ve tried everything, but even our best efforts resulted in a sad, patchy lawn with lots of weeds and bare spots. In this neighborhood, that’s just not going to cut it.”
Artificial Lawns: The Advantages
DuPont Forever Lawns are an exciting new type of artificial lawn. Synthetic grass looks and feels like the real thing – without any need for maintenance. You get all of the enjoyment and none of the work. Each blade of grass is manufactured to resemble natural growing grass. The grass blades come in a mix of four colors, which provides a realistic appearance, and best of all, an artificial lawn can be installed anywhere.
In Annie’s case, the ground was heavily compacted and rocky. The nutrition grass needs to thrive was just not that, and augmenting the soil so it would support healthy grass would cost a fortune. Having an artificial lawn installed made financial sense – especially when you consider the expensive, frustrating routine of planting seed that failed to grow year after year after year! We’ve also installed artificial lawns over sandy lots, areas that had previously been paved, and other very challenging sites. Artificial lawns look great instantly and last for many, many years.
Looking Good Means Feeling Great
“Once we had the artificial lawn installed, my confidence and satisfaction in our home increased tremendously,” Annie said. “When people go by on their walks, I don’t think they’re judging our lawn anymore. It looks a lot nicer to have this lush, perfectly manicured grass. No one ever suspects it’s artificial: I’ve even had people compliment me on our landscaping!”
