I want you to know I have not touched the color of the photos I'm posting today at all. They may look like they've been photoshopped but they haven't been. (Well, I did add some text to one or two of them, but there were no color adjustments whatsoever.)
Ok, then …
Yes, that is what my backyard grass was looking like last week.
Another section of it looked like this:
Next came a zillion worker men. This part of the process got a little messy:
The entire job (about 1,000 square feet of grass) took a total of four days from start to finish. Speaking of completion ….
The end results made us question why we didn't do this years ago. I can't imagine how much we would have saved by now on our (very large) water bills!
This next area used to hold a swing/fort set when my kids were younger. Now there's a little garden tucked back in the corner.
Here's one last photo of the completed project.
What a huge improvement, don't you think?
By the way, artifical turf is installed a bit differently if you have pets. A few of you left comments or emailed me with questions regarding pet use. A good turf company will make sure your yard is designed for your needs. (Or should I say your pet's needs?)
I think it looks so much better. It will save us a lot of money on water bills (drought-ridden California = big water bills). The dogs and bazillions of wild rabbits won't be able to kill it either.
There's only one problem …
Somebody misses having all those rabbits around to chase.
