A low maintenance solution for an amazing lawn for your Austin home
Are you tired of trying to keep your lawn green? We discovered a low maintenance solution that we’re excited to share with you.
We recently got to visit with Tanner Shepard, the owner of Lawn Pop -- a locally owned business that gives Austin homeowners the green lawn they dream of . . . with artificial turf! We were wowed by the beauty of the product and all the economic and maintenance benefits.
Lawn Pop opened in 2012 when Tanner decided to get artificial turf installed in his own yard. After going through the process on his own, Tanner realized that with his landscape architecture he could elevate the experience. And so Lawn Pop was born.
With Austin’s watering restrictions it can be tough for homeowners to keep their natural lawn looking green. Add on the cost of maintenance and the bills can quickly add up. Artificial turf is a low maintenance and water-wise solution.
Tanner explained that most of his clients are eager to reduce their water bill, are tired of muddy dead spots in shady yards, want to reduce allergies, are looking to cut down on maintenance, or simply want to reduce the dirt and grime tracked in from a real lawn. With artificial turf those issues are eliminated.
Maintenance is simple. Tanner recommends washing the turf with water about once a month, and with how the weather is in Austin usually, our sporadic rain is enough to take care of this. Lawn Pop also recommends raking the turf periodically with a bristled broom or rake to keep the turf from matting over time, and keep it looking like new.
And it looks good. This is not the kind of tacky artificial turf that you would find at your local miniature golf course. Lawn Pop installs Envirofill, the top synthetic turf infill choice with health and safety advantages for people and pets. Envirofill also has antimicrobial protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew that can cause stains, odors, and deterioration of the turf. Envirofill also looks lush and lasts longer than other artificial turfs. We were impressed with the realistic look and soft feel of the lawn.
The process of getting Lawn Pop’s turf into your yard starts with their team coming out to your home to assess the property and visit with you about your vision for the space. Costs range anywhere from $8-$12 per square foot. With a plan and price in place, Lawn Pop brings their crew in to prepare your yard for the sand and turf that will be laid down. The installation process usually takes around 5 days to complete from start to finish.
