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.

Creative Ways to Spruce Up Your Landscape with Artificial Grass

Dress up the spaces in your backyard with a pop of artificial grass. EasyTurf artificial grass is a low-maintenance solution to adding texture and color to your yard.

 

  • Driveway. The typical driveway is paved with boring slabs of concrete. Tan and one-dimensional, these driveways add nothing conceptually and aesthetically to the front of the home. Adding artificial grass is a great way to spruce up the driveway.

 

  • Children’s Playground. An EasyTurf artificial grass playground surface is safer, cleaner and more comfortable than alternative options on the market. Using EasyTurf artificial grass underneath a playground structure offers a cushioned, soft play surface that children will enjoy over and over again. Artificial grass also eliminates children’s muddy feet and grass stains!

 

  • Pool. Using EasyTurf artificial grass around a pool is a great backyard solution. Real grass can track mud and dry grass into the pool, not to mention the fertilizers and chemicals that contaminate the pool. In addition, artificial grass can add a cool element of design that is unachievable with real grass.

 

  • Bocce ball or Putting Green course. This is a great choice for a family friendly backyard space that gets people interacting outside. Family and friends will play for hours on a bocce ball or putting green artificial grass course.

Sizzling Summer Fun

It’s time for some Sizzling Summer Fun!

Ready for some summer fun?  Host a patriotic celebration this July and turn the traditional backyard BBQ into a sizzling summer fun event.

Here are some tips to make your 4th of July event the best on the block!

  • Keep It Simple
    • You won’t need much in the way of decorations for an outdoor backyard party. Tea lights in mason jars and white lights hung on the deck, or in a tree, add lots of ambiance without much fuss. Add in a few patriotic touches, like a group of small flags in a vase as a centerpiece and you are all set.
  • Make it Luckysizzling summer fun
    • Ask everyone to bring a dish to share so there are a variety of dishes and tastes…and there is less work for you! A buffet set-up, with all the food and dishes on one table, makes it quick and easy for guests to find what they want and make their own plates.
  • Keep it Traditional
    • As the host, you’ll likely be providing the main dishes.  By keeping the menu fairly traditional, your guests will know what to expect. Burgers and hot dogs with potato salad, baked beans and grilled corn on the cob are festive, easy recipes for a traditional 4th of July picnic or BBQ.
  • Make it Sparkle
    • Include some fireworks, if they are allowed in your area.  Sparklers are a family favorite, especially for the kids. To ensure safety, use paper cups, cut in half, to protect hands from the sparks and burning embers. And always be sure to use fireworks in a safe place, like a driveway or street, away from flammable materials and dry, grass areas.
  • Turn up the Volume
    • Include a soundtrack for the event, including festive, patriotic anthems that everyone can sing along to and enjoy.
  • Make a Splash
    • Include some simple backyard games for the kids and include the parents. Nothing says fun like a little friendly competition! Better yet, make it a pool party so everyone can take a dip in the pool and stay cool.

And to ensure that the whole event is a success, consider having EasyTurf artificial grass installed in your backyard. Lush, green and always gorgeous, artificial grass is the perfect backdrop for a sizzling summer fun event!  Call us for a free design consultation – 800-445-2944.

Plan a Dream Staycation

Want a great vacation without leaving the comfort of home? Plan a dream Staycation!

Have you ever heard of a staycation?  Going on vacation can be relaxing and exciting but the preparation can be exhausting and stressful. From the rigors of packing for yourself, your spouse and children to arranging for mail pick-up and house and/or pet sitters, the list of to-do items can be grueling.  The idea of going away can create anxiety and remove the joy of the actual experience.Staycation

Instead of all the work required to go away and enjoy time off, try planning a dream Staycation.  What could be better than relaxing at home and avoiding the traffic, the hassle and the expense of going away?  Vacations are about spending quality time together, so don’t worry if you can’t afford an island vacation or a whirlwind theme park adventure.  There are so many easy, simple ways to make time together more memorable…all from the comfort of home.

Here are a few tips to get you started.

  • Stop the Clock
    • Nothing is more stressful than living life by the clock.  Take off your watch, stop the clocks in your house and just enjoy the time with your friends and family without wondering – or worrying – about the time.
  • Unplug
    • In today’s society, we’ve become tied to technology, and that distracts us from living in the present. Turn off the computers, unplug the tablets and put away your phones. Use an actual camera to capture special moments, instead of checking your social media profiles and constantly updating your status with vacation photos.  Live, for just a few days, totally and completely in the present moment. Relish the quality time together.
  • Be a Kid Again
    • Do things that you haven’t done in ages, like building forts with pillows, blankets and couch cushions.  In fact, create a huge family fort and watch a classic family movie.
  • Get Outside and Play
    • A game of football, soccer or badminton is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and create a lifetime of memories.
  • Make it Special
    • Do things you’ve never done before, like eating a picnic in the backyard by candlelight or sitting on the porch talking late into the night.
  • Get Creative
    • Nothing is quite as fun as working on a project together. Create a family dream board, work on a huge puzzle, or just sit and read together.  Make family meals together, with everyone sharing in the cooking, prep work and clean-up.  Your children will remember those special times for years.
  • Turn up the Music
    • Vacations are more memorable when set to music, so turn off the TV and turn up the stereo.  Listen to different types of music and have a family dance-off competition.

To make the most of your dream staycation, consider having EasyTurf artificial grass installed in your yard. Enjoy your time off instead of worrying about taking care of your lawn. Call us for a free design consultation – 800-445-2944.
