Beautiful? Yes! Artificial? You betcha!

According to a recent MSN Real Estate article, “It wasn’t Astroturf, exactly, but long, smooth blades of grass that looked exactly like real grass but happened to be plastic. It had been laid down like a carpet, over prepared ground. She hosed it off sometimes, and it drained itself. It wasn’t cheap, but given that she didn’t have to mow, water, reseed or fertilize, it would pay for itself in eight years. And then there was the peace of mind, the quiet and the conservation of water.” Wallace Stegner writes about his experience with installing an artificial grass lawn in his backyard.
The variety of options is endless, “You can get synthetic lawn that’s late-summer long or putting-green short or somewhere in between. You can get dark green or light green, depending on the kind of grass that grows near you. You can even choose the color of the springy underlayer. Ours has variegated strands ― some dark, some light ― and looks especially real.” Southern Californian grass likes to grow a light green and yellow color, and of course wouldn’t look natural without a little brown in it. Purchase-Green has an option for that! Just check out their Nature’s Sod Line.
Stegner continues to say, “The best part? No pouring clean water onto the grass. No burning gasoline to mow it. No fertilizer running into the sea.” Think of all the extra time and money you will have at your disposal. This miracle grass will pay for itself!
A woman who also made a comment on the article said, “People will stop and stare and say how magnificent your lawn is. And you don’t have to tell anyone it’s fake. I always do, in the same way I blurt out that the dress I’ve been complimented on cost $19. But you can just let people think you have a very green thumb, and a silent, invisible mower. You can act like a girl in a real designer dress, and just say thank you.” Purchase-Green’s grass gives you the freedom because it does look so unbelievably real.
