For literally the past 15-20 years, my business struggled with the the lawn in front of our office park. And once the drought here got even worse, and City of Clovis got strict on water usage, I knew it was time to make a change.
Fed up with trying to keep it green (or, alive), down to the monthly maintenance of the old sprinkler system, I knew that artificial grass was the only practical solution. SYNLawn was easily the first company that came to mind, as I believe they were one of the first artificial-lawn companies in this area.
Blaine, one of the owners I believe, came out within a couple of days, and did measurements to generate our quote. I'll be honest -- artificial grass is not cheap; especially if you have to have quality. I didn't necessarily get sticker-shock from the price, but if anything, it confirmed what I already had guesstimated. However, not having my employees spend valuable working hours fixing the sprinklers and maintaining the area, I knew that artificial grass would easily offset those costs in the long-run; think of it as you would an investment in solar. Essentially, you're saving in water usage, gardening costs, sprinkler maintenance, and most importantly -- time. It was a no brainer by this point.
Well, it's been close to a year now, and I couldn't be happier. I drive by it everyday on the way into my office, and revel in the fact that I pretty much never have to think about it again -- which is a very satisfying feeling. Plus, my employees aren't wasting hours (and $) anymore babysitting the lawn and sprinklers, especially during summer. As far as looks, there's absolutely no way you'd know it was artificial by walking or driving by; the grass is so authentic, it has strands of yellow/dead, frayed grass throughout, just to give it the perfect texture. Also, the kicker, is that it looks even better months after install, after it accumulates more natural dirt, weathering, and overall wear-and-tear.
In the end, I'm certain that f I got quotes from other companies, I could've gotten it done for half the price. However, I didn't want to waste my time, and knew if I used any other company, that it wouldn't come with the quality, name, and guarantee that SYNLawn had after years in business.
Doing everything I could to not get buyers remorse, I knew I had to go with the best, and I'm very glad I did. If you're on the fence about it, I definitely recommend SYNLawn, 100%.
