Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fastguy46 Great Product!
This is my first experience with synthetic lawn grass. The Centipede Southwest turf installs easily and looks great. Once it settled in and the landscaping was finished, it's hard to tell it isn't real grass.
Couple of pointers;
#1. This stuff is heavy. A 23 foot roll weighs around 200 pounds.
#2. Mine shipped from the factory in Georgia to California by truck. Allow a little extra time for delivery to your home and don't expect UPS level tracking information.
I would happily buy this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dorothy Perfect fake grass
We ordered this fake grass thanks to the great reviews it already had and we love it. We have a small corner 5' x 10' and it was easier to use fake grass due to the drought in California. Super easy to cut and to install. Looks really great against the real plants and with the chaise lounge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arthur It looks real
I looked at numerous samples of artificial grass, none of them looked very natural. I finally found the Centipede Southwest, ordered up the sample pack and I could tell from the sample that I have finally located one that would look great in my back yard. I ordered a 30' roll, it arrived in great shape. My wife and I installed the grass per the instructions on the Home Depot web site (except that I opted for 5 inch landscaping staples rather than nails). We were amazed at how easily it went in, considering that we needed to precisely line it up between two walls and had numerous cutouts around plants, and trees.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Golde66 Well worth the price, and looks great!
After storing the product on the roll for two weeks, it was not matted when unrolled. Ordered 15' x 12' and was relatively heavy to handle, but could be handled by two able-bodied men. Installation was easy and uneventful. Cut in half, and spliced to create extra length. Seam is invisible, and easy to do. Used Grip-Rite Exterior Galvanized S/TPatio/Deck nails - 16d (3-1/2") to hold down edges and randomly in field, and they worked very well. Base was compacted, existing DG with 1" sand feathered out to edges. Would have used more sand if base was soil versus dg. After laying turf, brushed sand into fibers per instructions. Strong, durable product and Great looking result!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grc702 Looks Real and Easy to Install
I shopped around for a while for an inexpensive but great quality synthetic turf and this is the only one that seemed to be priced reasonably without sacrificing quality and appearance. I used this to replace real grass I had in small low traffic section of my front yard for easier maintenance purposes. I installed it with my mom within a couple of hours and like the other reviewer, we opted for 5 inch landscaping staples to secure the turf. It was so easy to install and it looks great. I love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBKansas Excellent synthetic grass!
I purchased a 15x16 foot area for a small back yard play area. It looks really good and I did the basic installation using sand as infill. The sand does help make it look more natural both by helping the grass blades stand up and adding a bit more color variance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ogdnut Best Value Synthetic Turf. Easy to install
Installed approx 200 sq ft of Centipede Synthetic turf in my yard. Took about 4 hours to install after having previously prepared foundation for install. Very easy to use. Seaming was pretty straightforward and edges were easy to figure out. Looks great and found that it drains very quickly after receiving significant rain 2 days after installing. Was dry 4 hours after rain stopped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeahawkNumber12 VERY nice turf....even for pets and play!
This grass looks GREAT, especially if you 'fluff' it after install with a turf rake. We have a small dog, a German Sheppard, and a 7 year old that all love to play on this turf. It is not slippery, even when wet. It has a very nice soft feel to it. This turf is also sort of 'randomly patterned, and very slightly 'clumpy', if you will, to make it appear not overly perfect and too fake looking. It is also very easy to clean up dog messes....just use Simple Green, then spray with water. It is very hot where we live, so growing grass was nearly impossible...this was a GREAT solution. Installation was very straight forward, with, by far, the hardest part being the leveling of the ground below. Once leveled though, it really is as simple as rolling it out, then using a box-cutter to shape edges. I used 4in landscape staples to hold it down, the recommended seam kit for the seams, and everything went very well. My yard even had some very tricky corners and pavers to cut around, but as long as you measure and bend closely, it's no problem. I have attached a few pictures, so anyone can view my extremely amateur installation, that went very well, by only my wife and myself for the job! The rolls can be heavy, so, at least for moving the rolls when they arrive, it is a two person job, but after the rolls are positioned, one person can do a medium-sized yard in a full day of work!
