These clients had tried multiple times to grow grass in their shaded back yard. We encouraged them to try artificial turf. It looks great! It’s no maintenance, no watering, fertilizing, weeding. Just blow it off. We also added a dry creek bed for water management and some low stone walls for accents, as well as shade loving planting. These clients struggled for years with drainage, erosion and dead grass. We removed some trees for more light, and installed a high end artificial turf. It is very low maintenance, requiring no watering, weeding, mowing or edging.
