An artificial lawn brings the beauty and appeal of real grass to your property without all the maintenance, wasted water, or time spent trying to keep a lawn green in Los Angeles. A fake lawn is a perfect solution for homeowners and businesses tired of endless upkeep only to be disappointed with spotty coverage and yellowing. High-quality synthetic grass looks and feels surprisingly real. You need to see and feel it for yourself to believe what’s possible for your artificial turf lawn.
A synthetic lawn delivers instant curb appeal that’s durable, even in a public setting. The gardener or landscaper can focus on tending and enhancing other natural features on the property, while the artificial lawn mostly cares for itself.
- Looks amazing indoors and out
- Perfect for compact spaces
- Sets special areas apart while bringing the outdoors in: sunrooms, waiting area, putting greens, meditation room, or sporting space

Real vs Artificial Lawn comparison for homeowners:
With an artificial lawn, you get the same—or better—visual appeal than a real lawn with much less maintenance than a traditional lawn. The cost-effectiveness makes it very appealing for all kinds of applications where a real lawn wouldn’t work. For older homeowners and those with other abilities, a fake lawn stops the constant struggle to pay others to help with lawn care. At a distance, neighbors just see what looks like a healthy lawn that’s actually hard to achieve in Los Angeles.

What to consider before installing artificial lawn?
Artificial lawns have higher upfront costs but very low maintenance costs over the 15-20 years they last. This more than pays for that cost and delivers a more attractive lawn hard to achieve in Los Angeles. Those who want a beautiful lawn now but are worried about long-term maintenance should consider a fake lawn.
How to choose artificial turf for your front lawn
Consider the durability, versatility, and appearance. You want something that will look great for more than a decade, not a couple of years. The height of the pile, infill level and blade length can determine the feel, look, and function of an artificial turf lawn. An in-fill like silica sand or crumb rubber under the synthetic lawn prevents matting and improves comfort with each step.

How long does artificial grass last?
Do weeds grow through artificial lawn?
Weeds can’t grow through properly installed turf, nor can common yard pests survive in it.
Is it hard to maintain an artificial lawn?
Not at all. You may need to rinse it down periodically. Fallen leaves can be raked out. If you have a dog that sheds a lot, you may need to brush the turf occasionally. This sounds different, but it’s much less resource, time- or labor-intensive than maintaining a lawn.
Can you lay an artificial lawn yourself?
You can. But like many DIY projects, they make it look easy to install artificial grass. It isn’t. You’re unlikely to get the lawn you want if you DIY.
How often should artificial lawns be replaced?
Every 15-20 years, similar to repaving a driveway.
Is it hard to keep the artificial lawn clean?
No. Other than picking up dog poo immediately, you’ll rarely have to think about cleaning it. Occasional rain will do most of the work.
How long does it take to put an artificial lawn down?
Depending on the size of the project, it could take 3-5 days.
What do you need to put artificial lawns down?
Planning and design, turf selection, yard leveling, and in-filling are some of the things you’ll need to put turf down. If you do it yourself, you need turf cutters, shovels, utility knives, joining tape, tape measure, compacting planks, pins, among other supplies and tools.
