    Question Should the lawn be replaced by artificial turf ?

    The front lawn consists of two rectangles totally 1,500 sq. ft. It was/is bluegrass sod and in the past year has had bermuda grass, and now seems 50% bent grass. How does on make the decision of killing then replacing the lawn versus changing to artificial turf. Hoping to see how Tenacity works: https://www.lawnmowerforum.com/showt...-sq-ft-of-lawn

    People have said that:

    1. Artificial turf (AT) is much more expensive initially
    2. AT does not look as nice as grass. Wish it didn't look so uniform. How about a few weeds, brown spots, etc. ? The green color should more resemble grass.

    The savings in not mowing and in the water bill and not getting weeds are obvious.

    In California, how much will it cost to reinstall the lawn? To replace with AT?

    Artificial turf is NOT maintenance free.
    Will you buy the equipment to vacuum it?
    Weeds can grow thru over time.


    If can look good at a distance.
    It is not cool to walk through.

    Find others who have had it for a few years and find out about it also.

    Okay. The lawnmower can vacuum. Groundclear will stop weeds.

    A mower for a vacuum is not a good idea.
    The artificial grass mat will be sucked up into the blades.

    My point was...it is not maintenance free yard.
