Living in the high desert, it is massively important that we do our best to conserve water wherever possible. For many homeowners in Southern California, the biggest use of water is yard care. Grass is by no means drought-friendly, requiring massive amounts of water to keep it looking its best. With how much water usage can cost per month, and with many communities restricting how much lawns can be watered, many residents in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas are choosing to switch to more drought-tolerant landscaping options.
Owning a beautiful yard and being water-wise don’t have to be mutually exclusive. At JNR Home Improvements, we know that it is important to achieve both at your home. Switching from traditional grass to landscaping that lets you save on water will help you to get the most from your outdoor living spaces. We offer two main water-efficient landscaping options, each offering unique benefits. These options are xeriscape, also known as desertscape, and artificial turf.
Xeriscape or desertscape is a great option if you’re looking for a unique design for your outdoor living space. One of the main draws of desert landscaping is its eye-catching appearance.
Choosing plants local to the high desert will allow you the chance to design a striking yard while saving a lot in water usage. These plants were made to survive heavy drought and require only minimal amounts of water to thrive. With the installation of a water-saving drip irrigation system, your desert plants will continue to look amazing when traditional turf would brown and die.
For those that hope to save as much water as possible but love the cool sandy look of the desert, we offer plant-free rockscaping. Utilizing desert gravel and rocks, we can create stunning designs, including dry riverbeds and rock gardens.
There is a lot of freedom when it comes to xeriscape. Finding a design that suits your tastes is easy, and the results will make your home stand out in your neighborhood.
Artificial grass is a highly popular choice when it comes to low-maintenance landscaping. It offers the classic look of a live turf lawn while eliminating many problems associated with caring for grass, in particular, the high water costs.
Artificial turf allows you to fully eliminate your watering expense and almost all of your outdoor chores. You can enjoy a beautiful, healthy-looking lawn with none of the efforts that it takes to maintain grass.
Artificial turf is a great option for families and pet owners because its soft texture mimics the feel of live grass. However, it is far more durable! It stands up to heavy play and weather. Even in the rain, your yard won’t flood with mud, keeping your home safe from muddy paws.
Artificial grass takes away the pains of owning a lawn, replacing it with water-saving outdoor spaces that you can enjoy freely with your family. There won’t be any unnecessary water usage when you pick artificial turf for your home. It is always beautiful, and always ready for you to enjoy.
Choosing to make the switch from traditional to drought-tolerant landscaping can be one of the best decisions you make for your home. Not only is it better for the environment, but water-efficient landscaping can also wholly transform your experience with your outdoor spaces. By cutting out the constant upkeep of a grass lawn, you eliminate a number of monthly expenses and can enjoy your outdoor living spaces more fully. Whether you have a gardener come by once a week to tend your outdoor spaces, or if you do the work yourself, moving to a low-maintenance, water-efficient landscape will help you to save more of your money and time each month.
JNR Home Improvements is the leading authority on drought-tolerant, low-maintenance landscaping in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas! Using a customer-focused approach, we aim to bring beautiful landscaping to our community at affordable rates.

Many pet-lovers are becoming aware of the benefits that artificial grass has to offer. Even world-renowned pet psychologist and dog trainer, Cesar Millan chooses EasyTurf synthetic turf over any other option for his Dog Psychology Center.
Here are 3 big reasons that so many pet owners are choosing pet-friendly artificial turf for their homes:
1. Soft & Durable
Being a pet owner and a homeowner can bring with it a unique set of challenges. Making sure your outdoor living spaces look their best can be difficult especially if you’re also trying to ensure your furry friend is getting all the outdoor playtime that they need.
One of the things that pet owners love about EasyTurf artificial pet grass is that the texture is luxuriously soft, yet highly durable. The fibers used to make our artificial turf are made to perfectly match the look and feel of live turf. For pets and children, this can make a huge difference by giving them a place to play that is soft and cushioned. Torn blades aren’t a problem when you place your trust with JNR Home Improvements and EasyTurf!
Pet owners know that they can count on the durability of EasyTurf to look good through all wear and activity. Big dogs and tiny pups alike need exercise throughout the day to keep healthy and happy.
2. Stays Clean & Stain-Free
EasyTurf pet-friendly turf is great for any pet owner that doesn’t like a mess. Thanks to the 100% permeable proprietary backing on our artificial grass, keeping your lawn looking its best is as easy as washing your hands!
The proprietary backing allows liquids to flow through the base and into the earth below without any trouble, while also preventing muddy backflow. In the winter when it rains more often, this ensures that you won’t have to deal with muddy paws tracking dirt through your home.
Whereas pet waste can leave discolored brown patches on live grass, that isn’t the case with EasyTurf artificial grass. This quality turf keeps its color no matter what, and because you don’t have to worry about mud, spraying away pet waste is a cinch!
3. Keeps Bugs Away
EasyTurf artificial grass is made out of antimicrobial materials that help to keep bugs from setting up shop outside your home. When you have a dog or a cat that likes to play outdoors, keeping bugs away is a necessity! Parasites like ear mites and fleas require special medicines to get rid of and can cause a lot of stress for your furry friend.
Making your outdoor living spaces less hospitable to these nuisances can profoundly improve spring and summer for both you and your pets.
Pet-friendly artificial grass is a massive boon for home-owning pet parents. Not only does it improve the curb appeal of a home, but it also keeps its great looks with very minimal care! Dogs can put your outdoor spaces through the wringer: digging, running, and pet waste can all wreak havoc on live grass. Switching to artificial dog turf will eliminate many of your outdoor chores, while visibly preserving the beauty of your yard and making it more enjoyable for you and your pup.

We believe that you and your loved ones deserve a backyard that can provide for all of your needs while cutting down on maintenance needs and water waste.

In a sea of green and flower beds, there’s one sure way to stand out from the crowd: Xeriscape! Xeriscape, also known as desertscape, is a landscaping option that’s been growing in popularity in recent years. Far from being the typical grass lawn, desertscape is striking and beautiful, making your home stand out in your neighborhood.
Here are 3 of the things that make xeriscape so awesome:
1. Very Low Maintenance
Because desertscape incorporates a mixture of desert gravel, rocks, and hearty desert plants, you’re able to cut down a large percentage of your home’s water usage. By using only native plant species in our high desert landscaping, we can ensure that your landscape will be able to withstand our area’s weather with little assistance. The installation of a money-saving drip watering system will ensure that the plants are well tended without the need for the frequent watering that grass lawns require.
If you want to fully eliminate the need for watering, we offer designs that don’t include any plants. A rockscape garden won’t require any watering and upkeep, while still allowing you to enjoy a beautiful outdoor living space.
Without the need for watering, mowing, or fertilizing, you’ll save yourself a fortune. You’ll be free from paying a regular gardener AND from those massive summertime water bills! The financing options that we offer often cost less than the price of tending a grass lawn, letting you enjoy your savings right away!
2. Unique Aesthetics
Xeriscape offers homeowners a highly unique aesthetic. It’s one that exudes originality and personality. It embraces the look of the natural desert and can give any home a wholly new look. Our skilled design crew can help you to craft the exact look that you want to achieve with your home.
With the uniqueness of desert landscaping, the curb appeal of your home can increase as well. A home that offers a stunning and unique appearance can catch the eye of buyers, while money-saving, drought-tolerant landscaping can really seal the deal when you’re looking to sell. Xeriscape is an investment in your home’s future.
There are a lot of options when it comes to drought-resistant landscaping. Dry riverbeds are a popular and visually interesting option, while succulents and desert grass can create a vibrant and lively landscape. We can even incorporate sections of artificial turf into your design, if you want to keep a touch of green around your home. From plant-free rockscapes to a garden of desert plants, xeriscape doesn’t have any limits other than your own imagination!
3. Embraces Local Ecology
One thing that makes xeriscape so appealing to homeowners in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas is that it embraces the look and feel of our natural environment. The high desert with its plentiful shrubs, grasses, and succulents is just as beautiful (sometimes even more so!) as a manicured grass lawn.
Grass cannot naturally survive in our environment. It requires constant effort to keep it alive. Every spring, you must reseed and fertilize your lawn to rejuvenate its appearance after winter, only for the summer heat to roast your grass to a crisp. Lawn care is the biggest source of water usage for many homeowners in Southern California. It just doesn’t make sense for us to keep live turf at our homes when we must utilize so many resources just to keep it from dying.
By embracing the plants that are naturally available in our ecosystem, we make the choice to help balance our environment. Native bees and other pollinators love desert plants, and we can help to prevent invasive species from harming the high desert. Aside from saving you in maintenance costs, xeriscape landscaping is also a very environmentally friendly option. When choosing desert for your home, you’re making your home even greener!
There’s so much to love about Xeriscape because there is so much to love about our high desert environment! While non-native plants need a lot of help to thrive in the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita, desert landscaping thrives, giving you a beautiful landscape all year long without all the effort that grass requires.

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.

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.

A customer-driven, systems-based approach
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!

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.
