Hi there, that is a great question though I would say that artificial turf will not have as high of a resale value as a yard landscaped with a natural ground cover and native drought tolerant plants - called xeriscaping. With green building taking off and California, sadly, in a drought this has become a very common method of landscaping and is well-received by today's buyers (in fact, they might see it as lower maintenance and water bills as well as "trendy"!). There are plenty of beautiful, functional and relatively inexpensive options available - almost an overwhelming amount.
If you would like a recommendation of a local landscaper who can help you with a consultation and brainstorming ideas I would be delighted to put you in touch! Call, text or email any time. 831-854-7499 or firstname.lastname@example.org... more
