Does your Tampa/St. Pete lawn need a makeover?

Here are 5 fun idea’s on how EasyTurf’s Artificial Grass can improve your Tampa home

Tampa artificial grass

EasyTurf’s Tampa artificial grass is low-maintenance, environmentally friendly and stays green for all year round! Also, EasyTurf helps homeowners decrease landscape water usage by up to 70%? EasyTurf offers the best solution in having a drought-tolerant lawn plus our unique multi-colored blades match the look & feel of real grass.

Sometimes it’s just not feasible for those on a budget to replace their entire lawn with artificial turf. Lawns can stretch for acres, and even with its water-saving elements, replacing a lawn solely with artificial turf can be a significant expenditure.

If you want to save money with a new lawn, your vision for a new front and backyard doesn’t have to mean covering your entire lawn in artificial turf. Thankfully, there are money-saving shortcuts that still employ the use of artificial grass, while combining other lively elements.

Here are 4 ideas on how artificial grass can improve your Tampa home:

  1. Design your own Rock Garden
    Installing a rock garden alongside artificial turf is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most attractive ways to fill space in any front yard or backyard. A variation of garden rocks, crushed stone, and gravel can be assorted by color and organized into appealing designs, and are a great way to outline edible gardens, trees, and artificial turf.
  2. Create a Walkway
    Sizable blocks of stone can be found relatively cheap at home and garden outlets and are a cost-effective design element for outdoor space. And instead of cutting artificial turf to line the stone, use mulch to pad the stone steps a few feet on either side and then enclose the mulch with artificial turf. You can use large rocks, pebbles, and other basic elements in order to create gardens that require no plants at all. They create fun garden effects appealing to the eyes!
  3. Pavers and your Patio
    Instead of a single-toned grassy lawn, you can add an element of colorful relaxation by using pavers to morph a chunk of outdoor space into a budget-friendly patio. Depending on your design preferences, you can use brick, rustic stone, or even concrete blocks to spice up your open-air environment.
    Natural stone pavers complement any yard space and can be cut into shapes that fit the design of any patio or walkway. Pavers are perfect to place around fountains, fire pits and a great way to add elegance to an outdoor entertaining area.
  4. Break up Green Space with Mulch
    Using mulch alongside tampa artificial turf is an effective way to break up green space and make room for the garden of your dreams. As gardening’s secret weapon, mulch makes planting an edible garden, trees, or beautiful rows of flowers much healthier, contributing to soil fertility and weed control.
    Plus, mulch is incredibly cheap and like artificial turf, it doesn’t need much maintenance (if you buy organic mulch, you’ll need to re-mulch once annually). You can frame your favorite tree in mulch, create an eye-popping flowerbed, or use dark mulch to accent bright green bushes.
    Don’t forget to implement cost-effective artificial turf into your budget lawn ideas.

Why EasyTurf Artificial Grass is the Best

EasyTurf Artificial Grass – the best choice for your home or business

Artificial grass is gaining popularity with home and business owners; here are a few of the reasons why EasyTurf is the best choice.

 

Artificial grass was originally created to replace organic grass surfacing for sports applications. Because of the many benefits over organic grass and the innovations in the look and feel of synthetic grass in the past ten years, artificial turf has morphed from a sports application to a solution for a wide variety of surfaces. From backyards to rooftops and airfields, hotels and resorts to theme parks and condominiums, artificial turf is an environmentally friendly landscape solution.

Synthetic grass is made up of fibers or yarn that are tufted or quilted into a synthetic grass backing. The turf is infilled with materials that help the blades stand up tall to match the appearance of a natural lawn. Today there are countless varieties of synthetic grass.  Artificial turf comes in varying heights, colors and yarn types.

EasyTurf artificial grass is more than just the turf grass itself. It’s a complete landscape system. The artificial turf grass system includes preparation of the ground the synthetic grass will be installed on, the drainage through the artificial turf backing, the infill material used to keep the synthetic grass blades erect and provide ballast, and the yarn that create the “fake-grass” blades. EasyTurf artificial grass matches the look and feel of real grass. Artificial turf grass requires little to no maintenance. Keep your residence looking pristine with artificial grass landscaping from EasyTurf, your Florida artificial turf company.

“My husband surprised me with this grass alternative after we re- sodded our back yard for the 4th time. Our lawn company from our HOA use to cut my yard with a week wacker and every year the grass would die and have nothing but weeds coming up. I wanted to stone the back yard but it’s a hot, harsh look. So he called AlternaScapes and they started it the week of our Hermine hurricane. Of course the guys started and would have finished the next day but of course it was torrential rains for days. So they came back our first rain free day and got it finished and I could not be happier.

No more weeds, fertilizers, or wasted water and sod. My yard has never looked so good and I love going out everyday and enjoying the look. A huge Thank you to my husband for this surprise.
Another huge Thanks to Neil and his crew. So professional, came on time, worked like dogs, and asked me every step of the way if it was going OK. Our old home had a putting green put in by them and it was the reason that house sold in a day with 3 different offers.

This may cost more in the get go, but when you factor all the expense we have had put in it for the last 10 years going down the drain,this was a huge bargain.”

Backyard Synthetic Putting Greens – The Ulitimate Back Yard Amenity :: Tampa, FL

Step out your back door and enjoy putting on one of our beautiful, low maintenance putting greens.  Whether you are a beginner or a pro, young or old alike, you will love the fun and challenges that an AlternaScapes Signature Series putting green will provide you.  Complete with undulations, a first cut fringe, chipping areas, tee areas, sand bunkers and more, we can create a golf amenity allowing you to practice with every club in your bag!  Keep in mind that 2/3 of the game of golf is played on or around a putting green… so imagine how you can finally lower your score with consistent practice in your back yard.

Three things are key in creating a great putting green amenity: quality materials , quality installation procedures and experience.  Since 1998 we have been installing EasyTurf artificial grass products and to date, we have not found a comparable brand with the high level of quality, attention to detail and manufacturer support that EasyTurf has shown for their products.  Competitor products often utilize cheaper yarns in their artificial grass products (nylon for example = BAD) while EasyTurf uses only the high end polyethylene yarn (even for the thatch in their thatched turf products).  Simply offering the best product is not enough to guarantee a good installation though.  AlternaScapes has found that the best installations also utilize the best installation methods: surrounding polyethylene nailer board, 4 inches of drainage sub-base (minimum), stainless steel staples to secure the turf, aluminum putting green cups and more.  We build every putting green to last and provide the many years of enjoyment you expect from this back yard amenity.   Experience is very important and is the third key in creating a great back yard putting green.  Since 1998 we have been installing artificial putting greens for residential and commercial clients throughout Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina.  We have faced many different ground and drainage conditions, skill levels in clients and more.  We have the expertise to know how to turn a problem area into one that is useful, enjoyable and attractive.

Give us a call today at 1-800-445-2944 or visit our website at: www.JustLikeGrass.com to learn more.  Take a look at the YouTube video below to see a time lapse video of one of our residential installations so you can see for yourself just how involved a backyard putting green installation is.

AlternaScapes artificial grass the “Turf of Choice” for 2 Walt Disney World projects in Orlando, Florida

Over the summer of 2011, AlternaScapes installed over 16,000 square feet of EasyTurf artificial grass at two different Walt Disney World properties.

Walt Disney’s All Star Sports Resort had their existing poured in place rubber surface covered by over 14,900 square feet of synthetic turf by AlternaScapes.  This football field “mock-up” features several different colors of artificial turf to create the famous “Statue of Liberty” football play and the Mickey Mouse logo inside a shield outline.

With artificial turf grass, what would my lawn look like in a few years?

This is a question that we get often, “What will it look like in a few years, after sun, weather and wear and tear?”  The answer, as you will see … is “Still soft, still lush, still green.”  Plus there was no need to water or mow or fertilize, for many years. (Think of the saved money and extra time!)

Below is a video from Tampa’s Fox 13 News about an artificial grass lawn we installed in Tampa Bay way back in 2001.  8 years later the artificial grass is just as green as it was when it was first installed.  The home owner still LOVES their artificial grass solution.   Please take a look, you may be surprised how long EasyTurf lasts and how good it looks. This is truly THE GRASS THAT LASTS™! (Be sure to note the yard next door … brown.)

Pro NFL teams play on FieldTurf

Let’s talk about some of the places you might have seen FieldTurf installed

So, artificial grass… what exactly does that look like and what does it feel like?

Most people who hear the term “synthetic turf” or “fake grass” conjure up images of that thin, cheap tacky green indoor-outdoor carpet that they’ve seen at home improvement stores. Don’t worry – EasyTurf artificial grass is nothing like that. EasyTurf installed by Alternascapes of Florida is thick and lush and looks real and feels real.

Let’s talk about some of the places you might have seen EasyTurf installed:

Do you watch professional football on TV? Most of the NFL teams have either a practice field or playing field with EasyTurf synthetic turf. Teams like The Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants and Jets (shared field) all play their home games on EasyTurf. More than 60 NCAA College Football teams play on EasyTurf as well. So if you watch football, you’ve probably seen EasyTurf and didn’t even realize it. That’s right…EasyTurf looks so real that most people can’t even tell it’s synthetic!

Theme parks are another place where you are likely to see synthetic turf. This makes sense when you think about it. Theme parks go to great lengths so their grounds always look good. Synthetic turf is a perfect product for them – it always looks good, no matter how much foot traffic an area gets, it’s always green, no matter how much rain or water it gets and there are never any unsightly spots from insects. It’s perfect for them and it can be the perfect solution for you, too.

Here are other places where you are likely to find EasyTurf – public and private schools, churches, daycare centers, pet care and pet training facilities, hotels, resorts, museums and event centers.

So, now that you know who else trusts EasyTurf to take care of their problems, think about your own grass issues. Are you embarrassed by your lawn? Are you tired of battling the damage caused by chinch bugs and mole crickets, lack of water (either from drought or irrigation restrictions) or from the family dog and/or children that are constantly tearing up the grass? Why would anyone keep putting in more live grass when it didn’t work the first time? Too much use and abuse, too much shade, lack of water, too much sun, whatever your reason, live grass isn’t the best answer under many different conditions.

Your lawn is the framework of your property. The most beautiful home loses all curb appeal when the grass is yellow and spotty. Then, rain and irrigation turn a spotty yard into a muddy yard… dirt and mud that ends up being tracked inside your home and onto your floors, carpets and furniture.
