Artificial Lawn: Before and After
We recently decided to get an artificial lawn in our front yard. Here are the before and after pictures:
As you can see, the transformation was amazing. It was a bit heavy on the budget, but it was completely worth it! We are very happy with it. As you can see from the before picture, it wasn't a usable space. Now, it is very enjoyable! We used Artificial Lawns Direct. We are very happy with their work.
In the before picture, you can see that there were a bunch of lids and access panels (for our septic and leech field). At first, we were worried that if they cut holes for these lids, it would look bad and be painfully obvious. Not so! We tried with just one lid, and you can't even see where the cut was. It might be because we used the heavier wait lawn - Olive-92 was its name.
It was quite nice to have someone come and do it for us - it was mostly finished in a day. The advertised cost was 7.50/sq. ft installed, but after taxes and some other extras, it was closer to 10.00/sq. ft.
The kids love it, and we enjoy being able to lie out under the trees and the sky, without getting dirty, and without grass stains.
