Why Choose Fake Grass for Pool Areas?

Fake grass creates a beautiful backdrop for pool areas, but that’s not the only residential application. Backyards, patios, and balconies make ideal backdrops for lush expanses of synthetic grass, too, especially in Los Angeles, where water is often scarce. This artificial ground covering looks incredibly realistic, but it requires a fraction of the care and maintenance associated with a real lawn. And when you have artificial grass installed around your pool, you won’t have to worry about hot concrete beneath your feet or skinned knees on your youngest pool guests.

Cost of Fake Grass Installation

On average, homeowners who have fake grass installed for backyard putting greens pay $4,300. This price may vary in Los Angeles, however. In fact, costs for artificial turf installation depend on several factors:

  • Type of grass used
  • Complexity of the project
  • Square footage of the project
  • Purpose

For example, fake grass installation cost around your swimming pool may be less than the cost to install a complicated putting green. 

Manufacturers We Love

Turf Time regularly works with three quality manufacturers of artificial grass. They include:

Sunturf is headquartered in California, which makes it ideal for projects in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. Sunturf backs their products with one of the best warranties in the industry. 
TigerTurf is a household name when it comes to artificial grass. This company provides top-quality products for both commercial and residential applications around the globe. 
SGS is a leader in the wholesale distribution of synthetic grass. They vet products from top manufacturers to bring only quality synthetic grass to customers. 

Who Is Artificial Grass Right For? 

If you’re planning to install artificial grass, you’re making a sound choice. This low-maintenance ground cover is ideal for families who desire a soft, lush backyard or pool surround. It’s great for families who own one or more pets, as well. Synthetic grass for dogs is highly permeable, allowing liquids to pass right through. And if you’re a homeowner who’s uninterested in babying a real lawn, fake grass for yard applications is the solution.

What are the downsides of fake grass and how can I address them?

Large patches of artificial turf may be pricier than real grass, but your installer may be able to work with you regarding payment options. This grass may also be disappointing to homeowners who enjoy the constant work and tweaking that comes with having a real lawn. So, if you’re a weekend warrior when it comes to mowing, aerating, watering, and fertilizing your lawn, synthetic turf installation may not be ideal.
