New Accessories at Purchase Green!

Two amazing new accessories have officially hit the shelves at the Purchase Green stores!

Curb Appeal is Key to Selling Your Home

Increasing your home’s curb appeal will increase the interest in your house and help your home sell for more! Who doesn’t want that? Artificial grass can help! Purchase Green’s artificial grass can spruce up your front yard and make it more appealing to potential home buyers. Purchase Green can provide you with everything that you need to blend your surroundings with a personally ideal artificial grass. When trying to sell your house, artificial grass will not only add direct value to your home, but will play an aesthetic role in the selling of your home for real estate agents and home buyers. When two houses are virtually the same in all other aspects, the one with more curb appeal will sell faster, FOR MORE! Artificial grass can increase the perceived square footage of a lawn and add to your house’s usable area. It’s tough to define what is pleasing in a landscape job, but it is obvious when something is not. An ugly lawn speaks to the type of owner and how the entire house is cared for. A beautiful lawn will speak volumes louder.

Purchase Green: Featured in The Wall Street Journal

Purchase Green was recently featured in an online article for the Wall Street Journal. As much as we at Purchase Green love to honk our own horns, which we do probably more than we’d like to admit, the Wall Street Journal makes a great point. As a trusted and honest source, the WSJ really gives it to you straight. Pros, Cons, Price Comparisons, even some great photos. What I personally liked is the ‘Real or Fake’ Quiz! The quiz features pictures of natural and artificial lawns and it’s up to the consumer to decide what they think is real or fake! Coming from a couple self-titled ‘Artificial Grass Experts’, we are surprised to say that even we were stumped. One of the common concerns consumers have before purchasing artificial grass is, “But will it LOOK fake?” This article is a perfect example of how artificial grass technology has improved over the last 20 years. So for the few questioning customers who have done their research but still have their doubts about the remaining questions in their heads, we at Purchase Green advise you to check out the article and take the quiz for yourself. You never know, it might just surprise you, too!

Beat the Heat with Artificial Grass

In case you were wondering, it wasn’t fate that brought Purchase Green to the west coast of the United States, it was the HEAT. Record breaking temperatures and scorching summers is why the owners of Purchase Green decided that there needed to be multiple locations in California. Artificial grass is great for areas that get a lot of heat for a couple reasons. First and foremost, hot temperatures mean brown grass! Yuck! Artificial Grass stays green all year long! Second, a green natural lawn is expensive to keep alive and green. Artificial grass doesn’t need to be watered! Whether its your home’s backyard or your company’s storefront, if you’re in a location that is very hot or dry, artificial grass is the way to go!
