What is it about low-maintenance landscaping that makes it so life-changing? To put it simply, it saves money and time. It can give you a sense of freedom and confidence that other types of landscaping just can’t. Beyond providing beautiful outdoor spaces that you can rely on, low-maintenance landscaping will create positive change throughout your life. Here are 3 changes you’ll notice after you go low maintenance:
1) Saving Money
You don’t know how much you’re paying for something until it’s gone. When you wave goodbye to a grass lawn, you’ll be amazed at how much you save each month. Even with the cost of installation, our financing rates are often significantly lower than the cost of maintenance and watering for a live lawn.
Incorporating native plants or installing artificial grass at your home will slash your water usage down by a huge margin. In our high desert environment, the cost of water can be a massive drain in caring for a grass lawn. With watering restrictions in many communities, you may still end up with dying grass even if you’re pushing the limits of these restrictions. Low-maintenance, high desert landscaping is made to look great in our environment, allowing you to cut the water, without sacrificing your yard’s appearance.
Without the need for frequent maintenance, low-maintenance landscaping also saves you in gardeners’ fees. Because minor, occasional upkeep is all that’s required, you’ll no longer have to set aside money for a gardener to come by each week.
2) More Free Time
Water-efficient landscaping made up of artificial grass, gravel, or rockscape doesn’t need you to pour your weekend into its upkeep. If you don’t want to spend money on a gardener to mow and fertilize live turf, you have to be prepared to sink a lot of your own time into it.
Switching to artificial grass fully eliminates the time that you would have to spend on live turf. Forgoing mowing is not an option if you want live grass to look nice. Switching it out for artificial turf or desertscape allows you to fully retire your old mower.
No matter what season it is, live turf requires a lot of attention. In spring grass needs to be reseeded and fertilized; in summer you have to deal with dead patches from the heat; fall brings dead leaves that ruin live grass; and winter freezes and drowns your yard. Going low-maintenance gives you the chance to enjoy your year without worrying about the effects on your outdoor spaces.
3) Less Stress
Live turf lawns can be the cause of a lot of stress for homeowners. It doesn’t take much to kill grass, but it takes a whole lot of effort to keep it looking great. And if your yard starts to lose its luster you may worry that your friends and neighbors will notice.
Making a change to drought-tolerant landscaping will give you peace of mind. When you don’t have to think about what yard work needs to be done, or how much water you’re using, you can take that time to relax instead.
Low maintenance yards stay beautiful without all the work, allowing you a chance to actually enjoy your outdoor living spaces without worrying about their care. For example, with artificial grass, you can play games with your kids or pets without worrying about accidentally tearing up the grass, because our artificial turf is made for high durability!
A beautiful yard can give you a sense of pride in your home. It makes your house a place to bring friends and plan hangouts. Being able to enjoy this without sinking in time or money makes it all the more enjoyable.
There are a number of options available when switching to a low-maintenance landscape, each offering its own benefits. Choosing artificial turf or rock and gravel is a great way to fully eliminate the needs for watering or gardening. Incorporating native plants can create an eye-catching look, while still using very little water. In addition, our artificial grass is high durability and soft-textured, allowing for rough play with kids or pets. Whatever you choose, we at JNR Home Improvements will work with you to create a design that suits your needs.

Is Your Yard Ready For Spring?
With all of the winter wind and rain that we’re seeing, it might feel like the cold is going to last forever. But spring is coming up faster than we might think! In just a few short weeks, we’re going to see the days warming up, and the first poppies starting to bloom. With the coming of spring, we’re going to want to spend as much of our time outdoors, making up for all those winter days spent inside and to make the most of it, you’ll want a yard that you can enjoy without the hassle of regular upkeep.
JNR Home Improvements designs and installs beautiful outdoor living spaces specifically for our high desert environment. Combining beauty, affordability, and durability, our water efficient landscaping is a low maintenance solution for homeowners in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita.
As winter leaves us, we’ll see less and less rain, making water conservation a top priority for many Southern California homeowners. Both artificial grass and desertscape offer a way to mitigate your water usage. Native plants require less water than non-native species, and offer a striking image in the early spring, while artificial turf allows you to enjoy a traditional green lawn minus the massive water usage.
An added benefit of low maintenance landscaping is that you skip over the post-winter cleanup and straight to enjoying your outdoor living spaces. Live turf often needs to be reseeded after winter, while leftover muck needs to be cleaned up. With artificial turf, you never have to worry about this yearly cleanup. Because of the 100% permeable proprietary backing of EasyTurf artificial grass, your yard will stay mud-free through the winter and be fresh and ready in the spring!
Winter doesn’t have to leave you blue. JNR Home Improvements specializes in drought-tolerant landscaping that will last you for many, many years without compromising on appearance. Before you welcome spring, now is your chance to take your backyard back with a water-efficient solution that will save you time and money throughout the year.
JNR Home Improvements is the leader in high desert landscaping in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita.

In renovating your outdoor living spaces, hardscapes are just as important as the softscapes. When well designed, concrete portions of your yard can bring balance and contrast to grassy or gravel areas. They allow you to craft desired walkways and sitting spots, ensuring that you and your friends and family are able to fully enjoy your outdoor living spaces. In this regard, interlocking pavers and stamped concrete offer elegant options for adding your personality and tastes to your outdoor spaces. While the processes for installation are wildly different, both stamped concrete and interlocking concrete pavers offer you the opportunity to customize the hardscapes at your home. And, for homeowners living in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas, JNR Home Improvements can masterfully implement either option.
With careful application, a stamped concrete patio will look more like stone than plain concrete. Stamped concrete is initially poured much like standard concrete, though with some added color to the base concrete. The beauty of this cement application really comes through in the finishing touches. Before the concrete fully cures, a powder or liquid “release” is applied to the surface and a stamp is pressed down onto the concrete. This imparts an appearance of depth, color, and texture to what would be otherwise a plain surface.
In contrast, pavers are much more of a full system or process that allows you to customize the pattern of the hardscape. Starting with a similar base layer to the one we use in installing artificial turf, we then apply a layer of sand. The sand provides a surface in which to set in the pavers, which are applied in your chosen pattern to make paths and sitting areas in your outdoor spaces. The pieces are locked into place and polymer sand is brushed into the joints, creating an end result that is highly resistant to cracking or lifting.
As an addition to a patio, interlocking concrete pavers and stamped concrete can add a level of visual interest to your yard. In pairing artistically applied concrete with an aluminum patio cover or pergola, you create a comfortable backyard oasis for yourself and your loved ones to enjoy. Stamped concrete or interlocking paver pathways help to break up a landscape while making it easy to walk across. In backyards with firepits or pools, these concrete options can be made into necessary hardscapes that are as elegant as they are utilitarian.
In customizing the hardscapes for your home, it’s important that you choose an option that will suit your tastes and needs. Stamped concrete is a great way to add color and texture to your yard without the time and labor extensive process of interlocking pavers, while pavers are extremely durable and offer some further customizability. Financing options are available for our customers, allowing them to pick the option that they prefer the most at a price that works for them.
As a leader in high desert landscaping, JNR Home Improvements is prepared to help you transform your outdoor living spaces. In customer service and satisfaction, JNR Home Improvements is ahead of the game. Voted as the best landscaping company of 2018 by readers of the AV Press and featured in Enterprise magazine’s Enterprise360™ List, our commitment to customer satisfaction shines through in everything that we do.

Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics.
The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure five metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship — innovation, growth, leadership, impact and business valuation.
“Our annual evaluation of vetted data offers a 360-degree analysis of top privately-held companies across a multitude of industries,” Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, Jason Feifer, said. “They are deemed successful not only by revenue numbers, but by how well-rounded they are. The companies that make the list have pushed boundaries with their innovative ideas, fostered strong company cultures, impacted their communities for the better and increased their brand awareness.”
JNR Home Improvements Founder Jeromie Roberts said the company is thrilled to have this recognition on a national level.
He subscribed to the magazine and was curious to see how his construction company would stack up against other technological giants across the country.
He submitted his financial data for the last few years, employee records and essays describing what makes his company different from the rest. Based on the study forged by Entrepreneur, JNR Home Improvements is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth, leadership and value.

In terms of innovation, JNR Home Improvements’ success is three-fold.
First, they focus on making the customer experience a positive one.
“Creating a better customer experience is uncommon in construction and we believe that has been one of the largest factors in our growth,” Roberts said.
Next, is their systems-based approach in operations.
“This is designed to set clear expectations that meet the customer’s needs,” he added.
Lastly, is the innovative, energy-efficient products used such as their EasyTurf artificial grass.
“I knew if we started a business built on integrity and rooted in biblical principles, it would be successful and have a positive impact on anyone involved,” Roberts said. “We want to enhance the lives of both client and employee.”
He has more than 20 years experience and is constantly working on improving his skills and the company, as a whole. He is inspired daily by his wife Chrissy and two children, Sophia, 10, and Nathan, 8.

Regardless of what happened during this year’s Super Bowl, one thing is for certain: FieldTurf artificial grass defines the top tier of turf durability. When the NFL knows that it is the best choice for their stadiums, the rest of us can safely say that it has got some of the highest durability on the market. As the turf of choice for more than half of the world’s sports fields, it’s seriously strong stuff. For grass that will stand as strong as FieldTurf’s sport grade artificial turf, we bring FieldTurf’s residential arm, EasyTurf artificial grass, proudly made in the USA at FieldTurf’s state of the art facility. Other artificial turf brands struggle to hold a candle to the strength of EasyTurf artificial turf. Combining the tried and true FieldTurf durability technology with the aesthetics needed for residential fake grass, EasyTurf is the strongest residential turf available. There’s nothing you can throw at it that our artificial grass can’t handle!
Dogs and kids can play and run around your backyard to their heart’s content, without your grass suffering from torn or crushed blades. After hours of play, your outdoor living spaces will continue to look pristine and picturesque. All the trouble that pet-owners typically experience, like stains, torn blades, and holes are all absent. Even pet waste won’t brown or stain this pet-friendly turf. With 100% permeable proprietary Maxxflow backing, spills, waste, and water all flow easily through the turf without leaving a mark.
In winter months, the Maxxflow backing ensure that your outdoor spaces won’t be left as a waterlogged mess. Winter can be a massive threat to your yard’s appearance. Rain, dead leaves, and even the occasional hail will kill off live grass fast, while leaving mud in its place. The proprietary backing of EasyTurf ensures that rainfall flows into the ground quickly, while preventing pooling or a backflow of mud. Without puddles to sully your yard, muddy paws are a thing of the past!
In the summer, you can trust that you’ve made a truly water-efficient choice for your home. In our high desert landscape, it’s important that your landscape stand up to the heat while consuming as little water as possible. Without live plants, artificial grass is a cinch to take care of, and will help to shoo off summer bugs. EasyTurf manufactures their turf from anti-microbial material that discourages creepy crawlies from making a home in your yard. This is a truly drought-tolerant landscaping option that allows for you to have an enjoyable and breathtaking landscape at all times of the year.
With little to no need for maintenance, our family-friendly artificial turf will help you to take your backyard back.
