A not so high-end appearance after all...

Rule #9: The purchase of synthetic grass does not suddenly absolve you of yard maintenance. High quality synthetic grass tends to look pretty darn good. Synthetic grass next to a weed-filled garden? Not so good. Synthetic grass that's no longer visible? Even worse.

If you can’t commit to weeding (see Rule #7), I suggest pocketing the money you’d spend on a synthetic front lawn and hiring a gardener from the local 7-11 hangout instead – you could probably get a good 10 years worth of gardening using the money you’ll save.

Look closely - there's synthetic grass buried beneath the weeds.
