    There are a lot of fake lawns being installed in our area.

    Anybody still have any accounts after one of those is installed?

    Lost any accounts?

    Made any accounts unprofitable?

    Is it just the do it yourselfers who get those, so all they have left is the shrubs?

    I had one 20 years ago before the "new" fake grass was here, back then they called it "astro turf". The lady wanted me to keep the leaves off of it. Charged them my min price.

    I have one client who had the back yard done because of low light conditions and kids. We still have lots of shrubs and flowers not to mention the cleaning, fountains maintenance and lighting to take care of. There is still grass in front too.

    I do have concerns about these products for the future, they are getting very good.

    Mario,
    I belive the guy from waterless grass here in Rogue Valley is doing it all himself. I cant belive the amout of installs this guy has done in the last year. However in my stand point where we do mostly maintenance we have picked up several accounts that have this and only need to service them quarterly. Makes for a crazy month when these come up but makes the bank account much larger.
