A local homebuyer had a predicament. He had just bought a new home in the coolest neighborhood in Austin, but it had one flaw: the gravel zen garden out back was peaceful, but borderline useless for his dogs and friends.

Enter IntelliTurf.

As part of a backyard overhaul the first week he, his wife and their two beautiful Boxers (great dogs; would pet again) moved in, we overhauled the zen garden into a synthetic grass green space the dogs and all their friends could enjoy. Following an outdoor living area transformation that turned a two-car garage into a one-car space with sitting area, we installed a two-stage base that drains like a sink, and our ever-popular 60-ounce C-Shaped Artificial Turf into the roughly 400 sq ft area.

The result was a synthetic grass backyard fit for a cocktail party.
