We are considering artificial grass for a small section of our front yard as it seems easier than planting turf. Any negatives we should consider beyond ensuring that we get one that looks as real as possible and has as few joins as possible? Has anyone had experience with DIY and artificial turf? I've attached a photo I took of a neighbour's place which I think looks pretty good and would be maintenance free.
I’d be wary if you live in an area with hot summers. I’ve found walking on artificial grass with bare feet unbearable. But for a front garden that might not be a big deal. I’ve seen that you can now install it yourself, but I’d be paying a professional to ensure the best result.
