Here’s How to Get Artificial Turf When You Have an HOA

Homeowners Associations (and their monthly fees) are a familiar entity for condo owners and those that live in certain residential communities. Upon purchasing a property, every owner agrees to pay all HOA dues in exchange for upkeep and repairs, and signs in agreement to a set of rules you must follow in order to live in the building or neighborhood.

ARTIFICIAL TURF

But something you may be wondering – especially if you’ve looked into water-saving opportunities – is if an HOA can govern your grass. Can they make rules about your ability to switch to low-maintenance, water-saving artificial turf?

Read on to find out.

 

Will My HOA Allow Artificial Grass?

 

If you’re an owner living in an area governed by an HOA that wants to transition your lawn to artificial grass, you may wonder whether or not this would be an impossible undertaking. To better understand this, let’s review what falls under an HOA’s responsibilities.

An HOA is not only answerable for maintaining common areas and making repairs, but they also create rules that define aesthetic guidelines for the community which they serve. For example, HOAs governing a residence with single-family homes may have a rule that specifies certain colors that owners may paint their homes. Right in line with this is the type of landscaping an owner can feature – and whether or not owners can install artificial grass.

Homeowners Association policies vary from group to group. While some associations are flexible with landscaping policies, others don’t allow individuals to install artificial grass – even in their own backyards. But are these HOAs an outright roadblock to artificial grass, or is there a way around the rulebook?

 

How to Get Artificial Grass if You Have an HOA

 

ARTIFICIAL TURF

 

If your HOA’s policy allows for a smooth transition to artificial turf, you’re in the clear! If you’re unsure whether your HOA allows artificial turf or if they have a strict no-installation policy, here are a few things you can do to get your association to allow you to switch to water-saving, low-maintenance artificial grass:

 

Just Ask

 

While some may need extra convincing, some Homeowners Associations won’t stand in the way of an artificial turf conversion requested by a residence owner. Ask for a policy change, and remember, there’s power in numbers. Approach your HOA with a few neighbors that are also in agreement about switching to artificial grass.

 

Have an EasyTurf Design Consultant Do the Work

 

Instead of trying to explain the benefits of artificial grass to your association yourself, you can reach out to us and have one of our design consultants meet directly with your HOA contact. During our consultation, we take them through samples so they can see and feel the grass themselves. Moreover, we speak to them about water savings, drought-conscious landscaping, maintenance savings, and how it’s safer for pets and kids than normal grass.

Artificial turf is one of the best ways for landowners to conserve water, and if an HOA can be convinced to do an overhaul of artificial turf for the areas they manage, the investment would be well worth the savings in water and labor.

Get in contact with your HOA to express your interest in artificial grass, and let us come in with the rest of the details.

Artificial Turf for Small Budgets: Front Yards Only

Artificial Grass for Front Lawn

The positive lasting effects of artificial turf begin on the first day of your new yard and compile into a big heap of savings over time. The cost savings from not having to water a grassy lawn alone are enough to make the switch from thirsty grass blades, but if you combine this with the savings in labor, your uptick in curb appeal, and the non-toxic elements of EasyTurf, artificial turf is a no-brainer for homes everywhere.

But even though artificial turf saves you a ton of money and time down the line, some homeowners don’t have the up-front costs it takes to transform their front and backyard into a pristine, low-maintenance lawn. But instead of doing a complete overhaul on every single blade of grass on your property, we have a small-budget solution for you.

 

Artificial Grass for Your Front Lawn

 

Instead of investing in a lawn turnover of both your front and back yard, it may be in your best cost-saving interest to change over only your front yard to artificial grass. Doing so could end up working out to a fraction of the cost of what it may be to change over your entire green space.

 

Reasons to Give Your Front Yard a Facelift With Artificial Grass

 

Artificial Grass for Front Lawn

Curb appeal: For nearly every home, the centerpiece of your exterior is your front yard. If you change over your front yard to artificial grass, you’ll have a lush, green, real-looking artificial grassy lawn free of brown spots and extensive labor. Level up your curb appeal and allow your front lawn to be the crown jewel of your block by switching over to artificial grass.

Square footage: If you want to get artificial grass with a small budget, it’s better to start off with a smaller area. For most houses, this means a front yard. Backyards typically cover a lot more ground and can be a significant portion of the cost makeup of a quote for artificial grass. If you decide to only get artificial turf for your front yard, you can always enlist in artificial grass for your backyard at a later time when you have more budget.

No Landscaper Fees: When you change over to artificial turf, your maintenance costs and labor time in the yard plummet. That means you’ll no longer have to pay a landscaper to spruce up your front yard or trim your grass every few weeks, potentially saving you hundreds or even more than a thousand dollars a year. If you have a backyard, you still may need to pay a landscaper to tend to that area, but your costs should be lowered if they no longer need to care for your front yard.

Our Artificial Turf is the Same Used by Pro Athletes

When weighing decisions to unearth your lawn for artificial grass, the benefits are apparent. Therefore, you’ll save unprecedented amounts of money on your water bill, you won’t need a constant stream of harmful pesticides, and you’ll have a low-maintenance slice of green that livens up your home.

 

Artificial Turf

While these are givens, many lawn-owners are hesitant to make the switch, and rightfully so. So, what about an artificial lawn’s durability? Will it feel like my grassy lawn? Will artificial turf stand up to the sun, weather, wrestling kids, and messy pets?

The answer to all of these and more is a resounding yes. And just why are we so confident?

We’re going to show you exactly why our residential turf not only meets but exceeds homeowners’ standards.

 

The FieldTurf Standard

 

EasyTurf is part of FieldTurf, the single most trusted artificial turf brand in the sporting industry. Across the globe, soccer, football, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, and other sporting stadiums are outfitted with FieldTurf’s artificial grass. Turf is fine-tuned to each sport, and through precision craftsmanship, they’ve made over 20,000 installations.

We’ve taken it one step further by implementing FieldTurf’s ingenuity and expertise outside the field, and into America’s lawns.

 

What Does This Mean for my Home?

 

As part of the FieldTurf family, it means we’re taking zero shortcuts. Your home will be equipped with the same quality grass that’s used by professional NFL players.

A sporting field equipped with artificial turf must give athletes optimum safety and performance features to minimize risk and help them achieve peak functionality. But equally, stadium owners require a grass-like lawn that will stand up to hours of rigorous practice and game time. Cleats, tackles, and constant use aren’t easy on grass. But kids and pets can come pretty close to the wear and tear of professional athletes.

Artificial Turf

FieldTurf has installed turf in over 3,000 fields that have lasted eight or more years. And many of these companies have not even reached their eighth year in business.

 

The difference in the turf is the quality of the fibers and the heavy infill. Polymer Technology, UV inhibitors, and an innovative extrusion process make this exclusive artificial turf stand the tests of both time and force, and the science behind each individual blade is designed to outlast every competitor on the market.

 

All this and more carry over to your home’s new artificial turf. At EasyTurf, we use the highest-quality artificial turf specially engineered by FieldTurf, and it’s created to be realistic, durable, and safe for your home.
