Default Florida Natural Grass Considered a Weed Elsewhere?

Having moved to Florida in 1997 from "up north", I was shocked at what passes for lawn grass in Florida. The thick, course bladed "St. Augustine" or "Floratam" or "Palmetto" would be consider crabgrass in Northern or mid-Atlantic states. Synthetic Grass, Artificial Grass, Fake Grass, whatever you want to call it, has gotten so good people don't have to settle for crabgrass as their lawn. And forget about trying to grow and maintain golf course "exotic" sport turf grasses unless you plan to spend thousands per month in upkeep. Southwest Greens offers about 20 different synthetic grass styles with different color blends, thatches, pile heights, and levels of face weights. You can get the "golf course" look without the maintenance hassle. Of course, it costs more out of the gate but typically the payback is between 3 to 5 years considering all the costs of the alternative. Remember too that the alternative comparison should be what it would take to have a beautiful, manicured lawn because that is what you get when you install synthetic grass in your yard. It's a major aesthetic improvement and always ready for a BBQ, backyard party, or lawn game. Checkout to learn more.
