Why we love Mirage Waterless Grass
Imagine having a gorgeous, green lawn all year long!
As a home owner, you know there are plenty of things to keep you busy around the house. The last thing you want to worry about is maintaining your lawn, especially when the average American home owner spends more than 40 hours a year on lawn care. Isn't there a better way to use your time, energy and money?
The answer to your lawn maintenance headaches is Mirage Waterless Grass, a revolutionary synthetic turf that looks and feels like real grass... but without all the maintenance necessary with real grass. Imagine having a gorgeous, green lawn all year long under any weather conditions.
Since 1998, Mirage Waterless Grass has been installed on almost every continent and in most every environment on the planet...from the hot arid deserts... to the freezing cold and snowy N.W. Territories of Canada...to the hot, rainy and humid Caribbean Islands! Mirage Waterless Grass allows home and business owners to create a low-cost, virtually maintenance free lawn that is green year-round and requires no mowing, watering, or fertilizers.
Designed for residential and commercial applications, it can easily fit into any space, regardless of shape or size. High-quality construction of the synthetic turf fiber is backed by a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty, ensuring years of continuous use.

About Product Installation
(Please Note: Different environments can require different sub-base installation procedures.
Mark off the area(s) where you are installing the Mirage Waterless Grass lawn.
Cap sprinklers and turn off valves.
Compact existing ground to “firm it up fully.”
Apply weed/grass killer and place a weed barrier mesh down.
Create a 1″-3 sub-base.
Spread and then compact the sub-base material.
Apply top-based sand.
Check surface for depressions. Any depression areas 1/8″-1/4″ or deeper should be filled and re-leveled. Although the turf also drains vertically through the manufactured drainage holes, it is still advisable to give the sub-base a slight slope to avoid any pooling (slope away from buildings).
Roll out turf. Position the turf accurately.
Make sure the turf is in the proper position; then cut off any excess material so the entire piece is easier to work with.
Create seams. The seams are simply glued together with our recommended outdoor seam tape glue and special seaming material (not included)
Apply the infill using a standard seed drop spreader. This helps weigh the turf down, avoid turf wrinkling and stabilize the fibers. Most customers use sand or rubber infill (not included)
Create optional edging. Depending on your yard, you may want to install some type of edging material around the edges. Concrete curbing, natural stone, rock borders and metal or plastic edging (similar to what is used around flower beds) are popular.
Step back and enjoy the beauty of the new lawn.
We can't wait for you to enjoy your new BBQ Island.

It will be your responsibility to move it from there. This option is ideal for those who have support or equipment to assist in moving your items to your preferred destination. While it's entirely possible to move freight shipments without additional assistance, we recommend our additional delivery services for a seamless experience.
Please note that Curbside Delivery is the only delivery option available with other retailers. If you do not have a way to lift heavy objects from your curb or driveway, please consider BetterPatio's Preferred Delivery options for a stress-free experience.
