The Grass is Greener on the Other side of the Fence, but why?
We’ve all heard the term…The grass is greener on the other side fence. With K-9 Grass installed in your yard it makes the statement very true! Not only is K9 Grass beautiful and green; but having it iin your backyard can also increase the value of your home.
As a Realtor, when homes are listed for sale, I usually look for upgrades like new Roofs, Kitchens, Baths and Appliances. Those upgrades make homes easy to sell, justify the list price, and give comfort to buyers looking for a new home. In addition to the usual upgrades, I also look for that extra special upgrade to help sellers increase their bottom line, and provide value to the buyer. Recently, I was given the opportunity to perform a market analysis for a customer wanting to sell their typical South Florida track home. During my consultation with the homeowner, we discussed the typical upgrades and renovations they had done while they owned the home and then I posed the question; “Tell me why you think your home is worth more than your neighbors”. So the homeowner thought for a moment and threw me for a loop; he pointed out one additional upgrade that I didn’t consider valuable until now. They had professionally installed K9 Grass in the backyard! So It turned out to be that extra special upgrade I was looking for to help increase their homes value!
What is K9 Grass?
At first I was like oh no! – Astro Turf, thats no upgrade, but soon I was proved wrong. What exactly is K9 Grass anyway? I had to find out…. K9 Grass is an artificial grass that looks and feels like grass. its unique features help promote a cleaner, safer, better-smelling environment for pets. With its exclusive flow-through backing, short dense blade structure, and antimicrobial protection, K9Grass is the ideal surface for both residential and commercial pet areas.

This isn’t grandpa’s Astro-turf K9 Grass gorgeous functional and friendly to the environment which is great for everyone.
And in my opinion…
K9 is absolutely gorgeous worth the investment. It will give this homeowner much enjoyment and a positive return on investment when their home sells. And the K9 grass installation helped to make this backyard something extra special for the homeowner’s family, and their two beautiful big dogs Karhu and Nalle. They built a paved patio seating area to enjoy the outdoors, replaced the St. Augustine grass with K9 grass for the dogs, and bordered it with beautiful real plants. Not only is their backyard enjoyable for the entire family, the use of plants that are xeriscape friendly cut down their monthly watering bill, giving further cost savings to someone interested in buying their home.
