While the phrase ‘celebrity trend’ may conjure up images of designer handbags, fast cars and expensive clothing lines, the latest A-list must have is sitting right in their back gardens.
A growing number of celebrities including Jessica Alba, actress Kristen Bell, and US actor Matt Damon are turning to synthetic turf for their landscaping needs.
32-year-old actress Jessica Alba, who has 2 daughters, installed an artificial lawn in a bid for their home to become more eco-friendly.
Celebrity designer Kari Whitman said ‘ I chose synthetic grass for Jessica Alba’s backyard doggie oasis and use it at clients homes as often as possible’
‘The eco-friendly synthetic turf looks so realistic and stands up to pet messes, wear and tear. I also love that it eliminates the need for pesticides and fertilizers, making your year healthier for you and your pets. Plus it saves water and some cities will even give you a rebate on your utility bill. It’s a win-win”
Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress Kristen Bell had synthetic turf laid when she adopted a dog. The artificial alternative was the perfect solution for Kristen who said ‘I added a 500-square-foot deck and added an area with synthetic grass and lots of comfy dog beds. My dogs love to lounge in the sun out there, or hang out when I’m entertaining. It feels like they have a yard in the middle of the city.’
In addition to gracing the gardens of A-List homes, artificial grass can also be found at various landmarks and pop culture icons throughout the world including locations such as the Playboy Mansion, Disney World, Disneyland and the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden at Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival.
So what are you waiting for? Isn’t it about time you followed the trend?
