Full story: San Gabriel Valley Tribune

Robert and Corinne Linke used to have a lawn like many of their neighbors in West Covina, but last year the Linkes decided to install water-saving artificial grass.

Interestng article.

FYI- most of those rebates you are talking about were not given out for Synthetic grass- the money is all pooled for toilets, showers, sprinkler timers, etc. Waiting for rebates in most cases will not savemoney as the rebates end up equalling a month or two of wateringand maintenance cost at most.

Many were for grass however and that's a great thing!

I called the AGL company and when I asked them ispecifically who made the grass, I was told that their grass is made in Texas by a plant that also makes Tiger Turf - another Artificial Turf Product, which like the grass from AGL is filled up with rubber tire crumbs and sand or other fills..

www.tigerturf.com

SYNLawn is synthetic landscape grass manufactured in Georgia and they are the largest manufacturer of synthetic landscape grass in the country. It is actually made with renewable resourcesnad post consumer waste and is not filled up with messy rubber tire crumbs or other infills.

Synthetic grass is a great solution for the water shortage- it's the most realistic looking product available and it blows the socks off artificial turf!

I personally used Hunny Do Artificial Grass and Frank and Brian install artificial grass in my back yard in Rancho Cucamonga. It is wonderful! Their installation crew was courteous and clean. I recommend them for any grass install. You can reach them at www.HunnyDoGrass.com

Tell them Brian Jaggars sent you.

Sure, Our product is made at the same plant. Just like Synlawn is made at the same plant of many other brands. Astroturf....etc.

AGLgrass is a specific brand. The materials used and how it is installed is separates us from other products.

If you were to go to a Tigerturf dealer, you would not be able to get an AGLgrass product.

Just an FYI.

I can say that I am 100% satisfied with my artificial grass. It looks and feels like natural grass, plus it does save me in maintenance fees. No more mowing, trimming, or watering. I've had mine for 3 years from http://www.syntheticgrasswarehouse.com , and they did a wonderful job. Definitely recommend to anyone who has the budget for this eco-friendly solution!

Just have to be careful on who you hire, make sure their Contractor's License is not expired:

Modern artificial grass is specifically designed to be pet friendly. The synthetic polymers used to engineer pet turf are completely non-toxic and not harmful, eliminating possible concerns for your puppy.

I install artificial grass and it's so much more natural looking than it used to be. It can be expensive as some have said but it's worth the money if you think of all the time and money it saves you to get an equivalently good looking natural lawn. Check out the YouTube video we produced showing how it's installed:
