The drought continues in Southern California
Despite what seemed to be weeks long storms drenching the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys in March, we have actually had a shortfall in measured precipitation in these areas. Using this seasons’ rainfall measurements taken at Lancaster, CA’s Fox Airfield, we can see that the Antelope Valley has only had approximately 30% of the rain necessary to be considered normal. We would have needed four times the amount of rain we saw just to begin pulling out of our drought. In fact, the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita are currently experiencing a moderate to severe drought. (March 27th U.S. Drought Monitor)
Water, a precious resource being wasted on natural lawns
On average, Californians’ outdoor landscaping soaks up 55%-70% of a households total water usage. Our weekend stealing, gopher breeding, maintenance headache of a lawn (2,000 s.f. average) is using more water than anything else we do at home. In order to keep your lawn alive, you will need to water approximately 1” of water per week. 1” of water equates to roughly one gallon of water per square foot. An average 2,000 square foot lawn will require over 100,000 gallons of water each year just to stay alive. We can double this number to keep it lush and green. To put that amount in perspective, you could fill the average 15’X30’ in ground pool eight times with that same amount of water. When you see huge, City water storage tanks as you’re driving around, they are rarely larger than 50,000 gallons or, 6 months worth of your lawns water needs.
The bottom line is our lawns are wasting tremendous amounts of water. Water that we simply do not have to spare.
Drought tolerant landscaping saves water
Beautiful, low maintenance, drought tolerant landscaping can help save enormous amounts of water. A well designed xeriscape, dryscape or, desertscape style landscape can be very attractive. With natural looking dry river beds, artificial grass, decomposed granite walkways, decorative rock and drought tolerant plants, your yard can be more visually appealing as well as lower maintenance. Your yard would no longer commandeer your weekends with mowing, edging and fertilizing. A drought tolerant yard requires only a few minutes of maintenance per month, not hours per week.
Our company often utilizes artificial turf in our designs to soften the sometimes rigid look of a drought friendly yard. EasyTurf synthetic lawns require no water at all. Really, no water. Not only can we create a professionally designed yard that you can love, we can help you reduce or completely eliminate the need for water, fertilizer and pesticides. Installing our exclusive EasyTurf fake grass ensures that you can have a drought tolerant landscape while retaining a natural, lush green look and feel. Our “Backyards just got better” concept creates drought tolerant, family friendly yards. We can help you do your part to save this resource and look great doing it.

In 2013 the World renowned dog whisperer, Cesar Millan, introduced EasyTurf® synthetic lawns as his turf-of-choice for dog owners that would like to rid their lawns of the common problems that come along with having pets.
Millan says the proprietary, 100% permeable backing played a large role in his decision to partner with EasyTurf® for a 10,000 s.f. installation at his famous Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, CA. "We have a lot of land to cover, so it's important to me that our landscaping is easy to care for, safe for our pack and has proper drainage," said Millan.
Unlike other synthetic lawn products, EasyTurf® artificial turf introduced; and features an innovative backing that is permeable, allowing pet waste and outdoor spills to simply rinse through. Pairing this backing with a professionally designed and installed sub base creates a landscape solution for families with pets like no other. Cesar Millan, in a recent video, stated "EasyTurf was the best choice for us and it's the best choice for your pack." He also stated "Not only does EasyTurf look just like natural grass, it helps to eliminate common lawn problems associated with pets like brown spots from urine, tracked in mud, grass clippings and it can even deter your dog from digging holes."
EasyTurf, INC named JNR Home Improvements, based in Palmdale, CA, the authorized, exclusive Antelope Valley dealer and installer for their synthetic lawn products in 2013. JNR Home Improvements has since become the leading synthetic lawn expert in Lancaster and Palmdale, CA as well as the surrounding High Desert areas.

JNR has an impressive reputation for professionally designed and installed, low maintenance landscaping and outdoor living spaces that feature EasyTurf synthetic lawns and putting greens alongside drought tolerant plants, decorative rock, decomposed granite, interlocking concrete pavers, stamped concrete and aluminum patio covers.

Back by popular demand
JNR Home Improvements is reintroducing our incredibly popular Pedigree dog turf; now more realistic than ever!
Our Pedigree synthetic lawn is simply the best fake grass for dogs available anywhere. There are a few specific differences to note when rating a synthetic lawn being considered for pet use.
Possibly the single most important thing to scrutinize when choosing artificial turf for pet use is the drainage. How will urine pass through the turf? EasyTurf Pedigree dog grass features the patented MAXXFLOW backing. This is the industries most innovative turf backing because it allows for 100% permeability while maintaining the stability necessary for long term wear and tear. Other manufacturers offer hole punched or felt backing that traps the urine creating serious odor problems.
If you are thinking about fakes grass the Fido will use, it better feel good on his paws. One of the reasons that Cesar Millan chose EasyTurf synthetic grass for his Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, CA is the realistic softness his pack can run and play on. They originally had another manufacturers turf installed but, the pups simply weren't comfortable walking on it. With EasyTurf artificial grass in place, the pack is happy!
Our Pedigree fake grass for dogs is built to last. Our one of a kind backing system not only allows for the industries best synthetic lawn drainage but, also has incredible tuft bind! Our specialized coating locks the fibers in place so even the most aggressive pack won't damage your new synthetic lawn.
Our turf is used on more NFL fields than any other type. If our FieldTurf® artificial grass can handle the abuse of football games and practices around the world, it will be able to stand up to your pack.
EasyTurf® Pedigree pet turf features a unique, variegated color system. We combine extruded grass blades of Field Green and Olive Green with the time tested Olive Green Sports Blade that has been used on professional and college football fields for years to offer an ultra realistic look. The varying width of the turf fibers create a genuine grass look unmatched by other synthetic lawns.
Unlike wooden patio covers; aluminum patio covers do not warp, split, splinter or require repainting.
A quality aluminum patio awning will look just as good as the day it was installed for decades with virtually no maintenance at all.
Aluminum patio covers and pergolas are highly customizable. With options such as ceiling fans, recessed lighting and flood lights, your aluminum cover can be designed to meet your entertaining needs. Solid and lattice covers can be designed individually or combined to create a completely unique look.
Other options such as roman columns, adjustable shade coefficients, colors and ceiling textures allow you to build exactly what you envision.
Our insulated, laminated aluminum patio covers feature and EnergyStar® EPS foam core. Expanded Polystyrene works as a highly efficient insulation, keeping the outdoor living space cooler than any other building materials.
High quality aluminum patio covers feature a lifetime warranty. Depending on the manufacturer, these warranties typically cover the finish from splitting, chipping, fading and chalking. Wooden patio rarely carry any kind of warranty at all.
Most aluminum patio covers and aluminum pergola can be constructed quicker, with less hassle than wooden covers. In fact, aluminum patios can often be attached directly to an existing concrete slab without the need to cut the existing concrete to create footings.
When choosing a patio cover for your outdoor living space, aluminum should be given much consideration. A cooler and classier outdoor environment can be created by using it.
At JNR Home Improvements, we specialize in creating beautiful, low maintenance outdoor living spaces. One of our most popular design elements is artificial turf. My family and I have enjoyed our own EasyTurf synthetic lawn for years at home and here's a few reasons why.
-Synthetic Lawns are ridiculously easy to maintain
Our family is busy. My wife and I both work and we have two kids in elementary school. Between work, sports practice (football, volleyball, cheer and basketball), sporting events, Church, homework, holidays, birthday parties, more sports, family events, etc., the very last thing I want to do with my limited free time is more work! It takes almost no time at all to keep my lawn looking great. I may spend a total of 30 minutes all year maintaining my turf, seriously.
-Artificial turf always looks great
This is most important for the rare day off that we enjoy having company over for a BBQ on short notice. I know my yard is ready for company, always. I may have to put away the aforementioned sports equipment and that's it.
-Turf is fantastic for play
There is not a better surface on the planet for practicing grounders, playing frisbee or doing cartwheels. Having a lawn without sprinklers to trip on or gopher holes to step into makes just about all playing better. Our synthetic lawn also does not stain clothes or leave us red and itchy.
We built a 3 hole putting green on one end of the yard with the EasyTurf EZ Putt and we absolutely love it. Our green has a few elevation changes that make it more challenging. When we have company, the putting green is a huge hit.
-EasyTurf synthetic lawns are perfect for pets
We have a dog, Guinness, and he loves our turf as much as we do. In fact, we installed EasyTurf Pedigree on Guinness' side yard and it is his favorite place to nap or do his business. EasyTurf lawns have a patented backing that allow for "his business" to drain right through. Our company makes the right adjustments based on the function of the turf so, we modified the base material to ensure ultimate drainage capability on the side yard. Solids are also very easy to pick up, by the way. There's good reason that Cesar Millan chose EasyTurf for his Dog Psychology Center.
-There's no dust or mud
Our backyard used to be a mixture of barely living grass, some weeds and dirt. Not anymore.
With synthetic grass, dust and mud are things of the past. Our kids or dog can run on the lawn while it's raining without ruining the lawn or getting covered in mud. It is the ultimate surface for a Slip N Slide, too.
Dust, gone. Muddy paw prints, nope. Fun, yes.
At JNR Home Improvements, we focus on enhancing people's lives. Recently, the AV Press did a photoshoot and interview with one of our happy clients about their new backyard transformation.
