    Check with your neighborhood bylaws as well if you have any. I know some neighborhoods banned fake grass because something about run-off.
    Never thought about that, thanks. I will look into it.

    My neighbour has it in the front yard, looked decent so when I did my landscaping I got a quote. I think sod was like $1sq/ft, artificial was over 10x more, so ya went with sod.

    Update, emailed some companies, I guess most are obvs so fucking busy that they don't need my money so they didn't reply but the one that did quoted me $20,000.00 LOL fuck that, I could re-sod every year for like 17 years and come out ahead.


    On that note, does anyone know anyone that will remove my old lawn (sod cutter) and re-sod it? I could go and search and search for landscaping companies but I figured I would ask people on here for their first hand experience. 1300ish sgft of back yard, might do the front yard on one side which isn't huge but I don't have the measurement on hand.

    There is a member here that has a landscaping company. Has that crazy C63 that runs 10's. Can't remember his username. He did my last house landscaping and I was happy. Charged me a fair price. Sorry I can't be much help, maybe the description will jog someone elses memory on who it is. I think his company is AVP landscaping? But I know I couldn't find shit online when searching him to get my newest house done.

    As for OP, yeah it's as expensive or more than finished concrete to do turf. My neighbours place looks fine from across the street, never inspected it up close. Sounds like you care little about that though if it's going in your back yard. The cost could drop huge I'm sure if you rented a skid steer and did it yourself.

    I care about the look of my lawn AND I have dogs. Nice lawns and dogs don't mix so I thought "hey fake grass" but that's not gonna happen in a house that I only wanna spend like 3 more years in.

    You ever try any of that stuff you add to their water that's supposed to make their piss less acidic?

    I don't know what we do with our dog that helps? But my lawn has slight dry spots, but nothing worth fretting about. I've seen others lawns and they are terrible. Took me 2 years to get my lawn back to proper health in Fort Mac when the previous owners has dogs pissing all over the place.

    It's nitrogen in piss. It's over fertilizing a concentrated area, most common with female dogs.
    His problem may also be that they tear it up running around, too. Rather than piss.

    I think users "Nadeau" and something along the lines of "AMG//Pwr" have fancy Mercedes. Maybe that helps narrow it down?
