These clients wanted to make a big impact with their backyard makeover, and succeeded with this Greg Johnson landscape design. The original pool was not quite up to the task for this family, but there was potential for something even better. While a new pool was constructed behind the main portion of the house, the smaller original pool to the side of the lanai was filled in for a one-of-a-kind putting green featuring premium synthetic grass products. Then to complete the lush design, the homeowners chose full realistic green artificial landscape grass for around the pool to keep the area low in maintenance, but also to create a clean crisp lounge and entertainment area. By creating a putting green for a little friendly family competition and an inviting soft grassy area for family and friends, the homeowners made an investment that will yield dividends for years to come. What does this investment mean? WATER CONSERVATION – These specific artificial turf products require no water to maintain their lush, green, beautiful appearances. The beauty and functionality of the products make them ideal alternatives to natural grass that also save precious water. The Southern Nevada Water Authority estimates that every square foot of natural grass replaced saves 55 gallons of water per year. CHEMICAL-FREE MAINTENANCE – This premium line of synthetic grasses help reduce the introduction of chemicals into the environment by eliminating fertilizers, pesticides, and weed killers that are commonly used to maintain natural grass landscaping, which is ideal for protecting our fragile southwest Florida environment. Now a manicured lawn or entertainment area can be achieved with no mowing, seeding, or edging, which also reduces emissions from lawn care equipment. RECYCLING – The multi-layered backing system in landscape synthetic grass features recycled and renewable materials. The final backing layer is comprised of recycled plastic bottles from Project Yellowstone, an innovative recycling partnership with Yellowstone National Park. A second layer features BioCel technology created from soybean plants, which are 100% renewable resources. HEALTH AND WELLNESS – This premium synthetic grass does not harbor insects or contain allergens present in natural grass. By installing two golf turf products, a putting green and a fringe, and an additional landscape product, we were able to give the homeowners a pleasing variety of leisure surfaces on which to enjoy healthy and relaxing activities. Now these Pine Ridge Estate homeowners can host friends and family, or just enjoy themselves, with a number of activity options just outside their back door. And we are pleased to have been a part of an incredibly fun and absolutely stunning project.
