    Re: U.S. looking at lead levels in artificial turf

    I really hope the results conclude that this is not a problem related to the synthetic grass industry but rather a problem specific within New Jersey itself.

    It will be a year next week that we had synthetic grass installed in our backyard.
    Not too many people we know have had this done in Maryland but I know it is quite common in states like Florida, Texas, Arizona, California, etc.. I have nothing but good things to say about it. It has a ten year warranty against wear and tear, fading, and it requires no maintenance such as mowing, watering, weeding, etc..

    So who cares if you suffer from mild brain damage ;D
    Let's hope not!

    Thought I would post a few photos of our grass ;D

    Never heard of that in my life.. Well in a yard.

    Do you make sideline catches along the garden?

    Actually it's getting so common in some states that even Lowe's and Costco's are carrying synthetic grass.
    Google it, you'll be amazed at the results that come up.

    Funny I know, it usually gets quite a reaction. We even have rubber mulch, now if we could only get our hands on a couple of those plastice yard flamingos ;D

    Hey, how do you keep the dog shit stains clean on that stuff?
    (JK
    ;D)

    Great idea.
    If I had that stuff I wouldn't be re-seeding bald spots every year and mowing the damn stuff after I got it growing again.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
