Switching from live grass to artificial turf can reinvigorate your enjoyment of the outdoors by taking away all of the bad parts of owning a grass lawn. By investing in your home and installing artificial turf, you make a choice that will fully eliminate many common yard problems and annoyances for years to come, saving you not just in money, but time and effort as well!
Here are 6 things you can wave goodbye to when you switch to artificial turf:
No matter how careful you are, live grass is highly susceptible to pooling water. Just watering your yard every day can lead to muddy puddles that can, in turn, lead to muddy paws and footprints from your pets.
With the 100% permeable proprietary backing of EasyTurf artificial grass, puddles become a thing of the past. Not only will you no longer have to worry about watering your lawn, but other things like pet waste and food spills can be easily washed away. With the backing of EasyTurf, you can also trust that rinsing away spills won’t lead to a backflow of water.
2. Brown Spots
Unsightly brown spots can completely ruin the look of a lush green lawn, and there’s no easy way to prevent them because they can happen for a variety of reasons, including heat, underwatering, or from pet waste. Without a way to fully eliminate all these causes, it’s difficult to prevent grass from browning.
The color of artificial turf won’t fade the way that live grass does. This pet-friendly and drought-tolerant landscaping is made to keep its looks even as real grass withers and fades.
3. Worn out dead spots
Backyard play can frequently result in torn grass blades. Now that spring is here kids want to play outside more often, and dogs are always ready to run through the grass. Don’t let springtime games or puppy playtime tear up parts of your yard.
It can take a lot of effort to fill in patches where your grass is torn up. Artificial grass can fully alleviate this issue. Made using the same technology that goes into creating NFL grade sports turf, our family and pet-friendly turf can withstand anything you throw at it, from an intense game of backyard soccer to tug-of-war and fetch.
Bugs seem to run rampant during the spring and summer. Ants ruin picnics, mosquitoes take refuge in puddles, and aphids try to devour your garden. These nuisances don’t have to be there, but with live turf can be a massive chore to be rid of them. Because these tiny invaders like to make your yard into their home, insecticides need to be used if you want them to stay away. Unfortunately, these chemicals aren’t all that good for you, your pets, or your kids either. Even with reportedly safe pesticides, you may end up harming the good bugs like bees, butterflies, and ladybugs as well as the bad bugs.
Our artificial turf doesn’t require you to spray chemicals to keep the bugs away. Because of the antimicrobial nature of EasyTurf, bugs have a hard time making their home in it. Bugs that want to eat the grass have nothing to munch on, and without puddles, mosquitoes can’t lay their eggs. You can enjoy your yard without bugs and without chemical sprays when you make the switch to artificial grass.
By cutting out the need for daily maintenance, artificial grass can save you in both time and money. As we fully welcome spring, live grass requires more maintenance, more water, and more money to keep it looking great. Reseeding and fertilizing requires you to put in your hard earned cash as well as valuable time, and this is before you account for mowing and watering.
Low-maintenance landscaping can save your weekends. There’s no long list of outside chores for you to do when you have artificial grass around your home. Instead you can skip straight to enjoying the great weather with your family or organizing a cookout with your friends.
A professional gardening service can cost you a lot with how much it takes to maintain live grass, and if you don’t want to spend the money on a professional, you’re left to do the work yourself. And even when you ignore the cost of a gardener, there’s still the cost of water that you have to deal with. Watering a lawn is the biggest portion of the water bill for most homeowners. By replacing your live grass with water-efficient turf, you’ll be saving more each month.
Low-maintenance landscaping cuts out the need for mowing, watering, fertilizing, and pesticides. Without these costs to account for, you’ll be saving bigtime every month. Even with the cost of installation, we offer many financing options that are frequently below the monthly costs of caring for a grass lawn.
By choosing EasyTurf artificial grass for your home, you can trust that it’ll look good at all times of the year. Whether you get it for your dog, your kids, or for yourself, artificial grass is a game changer, allowing you to experience the benefits of a beautiful, lush lawn without any of the downsides.

Right now, while we’re still feeling the chill of winter wind, it’s hard to imagine that the summer heat will be here in full force in just a matter of weeks. Though it seems distant, now is the best time to start working on prepping your home for the heat, and one of the top ways to do that is to install a patio cover in your backyard. Patio covers can improve your home for this summer and all the summers to come by providing visual appeal, shade, and comfort to you and your family.
There are so many ways that an aluminum patio cover can completely change the way you and your family experience your outdoor living spaces. Here are 4 of the ways that a patio cover can help you improve your home:
The shade provided by one of our aluminum patio covers is a stark improvement over the shade of a more typical wooden cover. Even in the height of summer, an insulated aluminum patio cover can provide shade that is significantly cooler than temperatures in the sun.
The shade made by an aluminum patio cover will completely change your late spring and summertime experience. The laminated foam core of our patio covers block the sun’s heat from penetrating through to the space below. Wooden covers aren’t able to block heat, allowing it to radiate down to the space below. For cool comfortable shade in the high desert, an insulated patio cover can make all the difference!
Because of the cooling effect of an aluminum patio cover, you’ll notice that you need to run your AC units less frequently over the year. From spring and all the way up into fall, you’ll be able to enjoy cooler temperatures with a lower energy bill. Our insulated patio covers are so effective in reducing heat that they have earned an Energy Star rating!
In addition to the natural cooling effect of our patio covers, they provide the perfect space to install energy-saving solar panels at your home. Solar panel patio covers can help you eliminate your energy costs, without the trouble associated with installing panels to your roof.
The shaded space provided by a patio cover or a pergola can totally improve any outdoor get-togethers that you host. Barbeques, playdates, and family reunions, are so much nicer when you and your friends have a designated spot to relax and hang out.
You and your loved ones will love the chance to sit in the shade to eat, chat, or just take a break from enjoying the rest of your backyard. At a big get together for a holiday or birthday, there’s no better place than in the relaxing shade of a patio cover.
Beyond the ways that a patio cover can enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces, they are also highly customizable. We offer you the chance to select a patio cover that is wholly suited to the needs of your home, from colors and design to lighting installation. Lattice patio covers offer free air flow with a smattering of sunlight, while solid covers give you total shade coverage, and free-standing pergolas can be installed anywhere in your yard that you want to add a bit of shade. Our experts are ready to help you find the best option for you!
Additionally, a quality insulated patio cover or awning can improve the value and appeal of your home. If you choose to sell or rent out your home in the future, an effective patio cover can help you get more offers. A quality patio cover is truly a valuable investment into your home.
Installing a patio cover is a great, lasting way for you to take your backyard back, and JNR Home Improvements is here to help you do that. Our knowledgeable crew members will help you to find and design something that really works for you. We are proud to bring our expertise to homeowners in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas.

As we get ready to welcome spring, homeowners have to start thinking about what they have to do to get their outdoor spaces ready for the new season. Having artificial turf makes the seasonal transition much easier, fully eliminating many of the chores and worries that accompany live grass. It’s amazing how many things about spring are better when you have synthetic grass at your home!
Here is a list of 5 of the best things about having artificial turf in the spring:
No Post-Winter Cleanup
Natural lawns require a lot of attention following the winter months. From the decay of autumn leaves to slushy puddles brought by winter rain, live turf needs you to put in no small amount of Spring Cleaning. Reseeding and fertilizing your lawn takes time and effort--to say nothing about that smell!--when you could just jump straight to enjoying the warmer weather.
Artificial grass looks great all year long, with none of the maintenance work that a live lawn requires. Once spring arrives you’re able to go straight to enjoying your outdoor living spaces.
No Water Waste
As it gets warmer, we’ll start to see less rain. For homeowners with sod, they’ll have to water their outdoor spaces almost every day, leading to a massive spike in their water bills.
Choosing water-efficient landscaping that features artificial grass can save you a ton of money over the year. Even with live accent plants in your yard, whether flowers or native desert plants, artificial grass provides homeowners with a lot of savings in both cost of water and in other maintenance requirements.
One of the biggest upsides having a synthetic lawn, especially as temperatures start to warm, is the absence of bugs. The fibers that make up EasyTurf artificial grass are antimicrobial, meaning that they banish bugs and combat germs, helping keep new pests from setting up residence in your yard.
No one wants ants at their barbeque, to say nothing about other pests like mosquitoes, gnats, and flies. These are nuisances that like to your outdoor spaces into their homes, either in the grass or in puddles and waste that result from having live turf. By making your outdoor spaces inhospitable to creepy crawlies, you’re able to enjoy spring a bit more.
The 100% permeable, proprietary backing of EasyTurf artificial grass means that puddles won’t ruin your yard. Regardless of whether the water is from rain or playing with a sprinkler or hose, water that hits your artificial grass will flow through easily to the ground below.
Without the puddles, pets and kids are able to fully enjoy the outdoors. There will be no worry of muddy paws or dirty clothes because our water efficient landscaping prevents muddy backflow as well as grass stains.
Our low-maintenance landscaping is designed with families in mind. This artificial grass offers a gentle, life-like feel with a highly durable design. Families are able to enjoy their outdoor living spaces to its fullest extent because it offers a great play space that can hold up to even the roughest and tumble of games.
High energy pets can’t put a dent into our low-maintenance landscaping. Even big family get-togethers with all of the cousins won’t be able to stain or damage your turf. Any spills are quickly and easily washed away, while the design of our turf blades is highly resistant to wear and tear. Torn blades and discoloration are a thing of the past, allowing you to enjoy your yard for many years to come.
