Artificial grass

I have a small are in my yard.... about 300 square feet of concrete has anyone had any luck or recommendations for artificial grass/turf in their yard? I'd welcome any suggestions for contractors or any people's thoughts on their experiences with any turf thanks in advance

    We have a rooftop deck and installed SynLawn over old decking about three years ago. Looks/feels like real grass and has a 15 yr. warranty. We've been very happy with the results. We went directly through a dealer but now Lowe's carries it and you can install yourself if you're even a little handy. Good luck!

    Meet your new favorite martini in Chicago
    Martinis aren't for everybody. That's just a fact of life. Sipping on a cocktail of straight gin and vermouth, regardless of the garnish, just isn't everybody's cup of tea. But with National Martini Day on the horizon on June 19, it's time for you to find the martini best suited to your taste buds.

    BOTH were drunk.
    Renee (whom we've met before) didn't do much to stop this very disturbing event though she was steps away.
    We don't go out to see this sort of thing and frankly, makes us nervous to go back.
    We want her to succeed.
    We also want her to handle these types of things WHILE they happen.
