Artificial turf or synthetic grass has been gaining popularity in recent years, especially among Arizona homeowners. This may not come as a surprise to most Valley residents when you consider the challenges of growing a lush lawn in the dry desert heat and the fact that artificial grass has a reputation for being eco-friendly, relatively inexpensive, and incredibly low maintenance.
Additionally, some of the newer forms of artificial turf look and feel so real, it is difficult to tell the difference between synthetic grass and a real lawn. When considering the options, it’s important to do your research before investing in artificial turf for your next landscaping project.
