Grass - Hi is that real grass? Live in San Diego and water bills are out of control. Never been a fan of fake grass but if this is indeed fake I'm now a believer. Awesome yard

The original post sounded surprised that quality and look had advanced sooo far. Synlawn has a pretty nice web site to get a better idea of the options. Easy turf may as well. Certainly buying local will save shipping costs so i suggest "do some homework". check references and warranties then go for it. In the right circumstances, synthetic turf makes a lot of sense.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The same rules apply outdoors as well. Using three shiny spheres in different sizes makes a unique and modern statement in a landscape. You can accomplish the same effect with planters or ceramic spheres.Tell us: How do you use object groupings in your designs? Have you found any other objects that can be repeated in a room to accomplish a similar effect? Share below!More: Put Your Collection on Show
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Modern Garden Style
Everything about this landscape exemplifies the best of modern design. Taking each element individually, there are plain concrete steps (that double as seating), a patch of lawn, a raised eating area and plain fencing; in other words, nothing that might seem distinctive. But the sheer overall volume of the steps, the interesting cutout in the expanse of grass and, most of all, the unexpected silver balls, give the entire space a look that is clean, simple and strongly graphic.

This would be an upgraded step style but one worth looking at. I mailed you some photos too about this. We could do steps like this and put an LED strip light under the overhang to really give a modern low-voltage lighting look at night. Very cool, truly Californian. i like this look, but how much more costly?
