Here in sunny, arid California, many of the more environmentally- and cost-sensitive among us are looking at alternatives to the traditional grass turf for our front and back yards. While some settle on more hardy plants that require less water to grow, like clovers or Bermuda grass, others have decided to go with a more modern, technologically driven solution.
Artificial turf has begun sprouting up in a greater number of lawns with each passing year. With a water requirement of 0 gallons per year and production methods growing more advanced and allowing for better looking and cheaper turf, the fake stuff is looking more and more like the preferred alternative for the typical homeowner.
The secret to getting your artificial turf to look as natural and aesthetically pleasing as possible is an impeccable installation that contours with your space and provides adequate drainage to make sure that the place doesn’t flood when it does rain. The right installers can mean the difference between a yard that resembles a shoddy pool of plastic-filled water and one that you can barely tell is synthetic turf.
Hence our spotlighted company today, NowMow Synthetic Turf Installers, a local southern California company that has performed some of the best looking domestic turf installations we’ve seen so far. The company provides excellent service, far above it’s competition, which has made many of their customers ardent supporters on their various social media channels:
We can’t say enough about NoMow Turf & their General Manager Sierra. We have a very large front yard that was about 20 yrs old & after many yrs of fighting weeds, grub worms, crows tearing up the grass & rabbits eating big patches we had had enough. We did our research & decided on this company. Sierra is great & so easy to work with & her quote was very reasonable. The crew worked their butts off as our yard is not only large but sloped too which presents a challenge. Through the years the slope had become uneven & the crew graded it & made it look awesome! They worked for 2 1/2 days non stop & the end result is awesome. Needless to say we highly recommend NoMow Turf….you won’t be disappointed!!!

Very happy!!! I did my homework and made the final choice to go with NoMow. Sierra was great to work with. Easy to talk to on the phone. Even easier in person. She came over, took measurements, answered all questions, explained everything in full detail. The guys came over and worked very hard, efficient, and no fooling around. They did a great job! Thank you NoMow!!!

I had an accident with some expanding foam that resulted in me planning on having to replace a small part of my turf and green. I asked NoMow for a quote for replacement and owner Patrick offered some advice to get after it with a power washer before deciding to replace. After a week and change of washing, I’ve got it back to great condition. Thank you Patrick for the advice. I’d recommend NoMow for any of your artificial turf needs.

Matt Christensen woke up after a long night in his home office. He stumbled into the kitchen for his morning coffee ritual. 30 grams of Estonian medium roast, hand-ground. Unbleached, biodegradable coffee filters steamed for one minute. Sixteen ounces of boiled water, no cooler than 195 F and no hotter than 205 F. Frothed almond milk and a touch of cinnamon.
“Oreo” was Matt’s canine best friend. He was a well-natured dog who had been with him through many life changes: moving twice across the country, career changes, and a divorce. Oreo loved Matt unconditionally. He would greet him at door with a wagging tail and smile every time Matt came home. Whenever Matt seemed to feel anxious, Oreo would jump up onto his lap and cuddle with him.
Matt had the tendency to take his curiosities to extremes. He was a former marine biologist turned cartographer, with a fascination for all of nature’s creations. He had been up all night in studying the cellular biology of grass. The day before, he noticed that Oreo was walking in a strange way on the lawn. He seemed to be in uncomfortable and wouldn’t place each paw down as he walked. Matt was puzzled. Per his curious and quirky self, he got down on all fours to mimic his four-legged friend.
“Ouch!” he said. The grass was prickly! “How can this be?” he thought. He had spent all summer caring for the lawn to try to grow it into a luscious playground for Oreo.
The next morning, Matt sat down at his desk with his freshly brewed cup of coffee. Through his research, Matt realized that the city he had just moved to was notorious for prickly, yellow grass, rather than the soft, green grass he had been trying to grow for his lawn. The issue seemed to be the moisture levels and the type of clay of the soil underneath. He needed to figure out how to replace the grass in his backyard without a ground excavation. After researching his options for brand new turf, he stumbled upon artificial grass. It seemed like the best choice: easy installation, low maintenance, and aesthetically pleasing.
Now he had to find the best artificial lawn installation company in Orange County. After reading reviews on Yelp, he found NoMow Turf Grass, a service specializing in synthetic grass and pet turf. It turns out that many pet-owners opt for artificial lawns because their animals have been destroying the natural grass. Moreover, it turns out that pets can go to the bathroom on the turf, as long as it is maintained with deodorizer and regular washing.
NoMow Turf has a specialty pet turf line that looks and feels so real that most animals are unable to tell the difference. It is made for pets of all sizes and is guaranteed to withstand the roughest of wear and tear.

Zach Reeves stumbled out of bed on Monday morning throwing on his work clothes and trademark glasses. He shot out the door and hopped in his GMC Sierra heading towards the office, on time again. It was a beautiful Fall day. Zach rolled the window down and breathed in. He could swear he smelled Football in the air, or maybe it was just the Fall leaves.
Today his mind was on artificial grass and miniature golf, though. He had landed a big project for his company in downtown Plainsville. Zach was born and raised in Plainsville, so when the Mayor had asked for his help with the downtown rejuvenation project his only answer was yes, of course!
Zach pulled up to the small white building his company occupied and noticed a car he didn’t recognize in the lot. Thinking that was strange because they didn’t typically have visitors he approached the buildings front door. Before he could reach for the handle though the door exploded open. “Hi, Mr. Reeves, right? My name is Bridgette, and I must say I am a huge fan! I’m sure you get that a lot. Anyways I work for the Plainsville Journal and I would love to snag an interview with you.” Bridgette looked down at her watch, “Say right now? Are you free?”
Zach took a step back studying her face. He couldn’t help but think she was quite pretty. She was also staring at him with her large green eyes. Crap, he thought, what did she just say? He wasn’t sure how to respond so he just said, “Sure.”
Bridgette’s face broke into a huge smile, “Oh great, my editor is going to be thrilled! You are the best Mr. Reeves.”
“Please, call me Zach,” he replied, still unsure of what he had just agreed to.
“Okay, Zach,” she laughed putting air quotes around his name, “so shall we?”
“Shall we what?” Zach questioned.
Bridgette giggled again, “Shall we start the interview silly.” She reached out and put her hand on his arm.
Shoot, he thought, what had he just agreed to? He was pretty sure he had a 10 AM meeting he would be needing to cancel now. Even worse, he really did not want to get interviewed. She left him no choice though because apparently, he had already agreed. So, he said, “My office is the second door on the left.” He motioned with his hand towards the hallway.
Bridgette released a breath, and it sounded like she had been holding it in for some time. She talked a mile a minute, Zach thought. “Great,” she said relaxing her shoulders. “So, first question, what inspired your business?”
“Um, I guess it was a combination of my Dad and my love for small town living,” Zach replied.
“Wow, that is so insightful. Okay, so what is your 5-year plan for the business?” Bridgette inquired.
“I guess I haven’t thought about it,” Zach replied, his face reddening.
“Oh my gosh that is so brave,” Bridgette replied. She had a way of making people feel comfortable and uncomfortable all at the same time. “Okay, last question, what are your plans for the big downtown rejuvenation project?”
Now, this was a question Zach could get behind, “Well, I grew up here and I am so thankful I get to be a part of this project. I was planning on using our turf to create a new putting green and miniature golf course where that old abandoned lot is. Not only will this clean up that lot, but it will provide a whole new activity that people can do, which should drive more foot traffic to the local shops and restaurants in the area. I’m really excited to see this come together.”
Bridgette replied, “O my, that is simply wonderful, I can’t wait to see it when it’s done.”
