SYNLawn Revitalizes Mountain Home Idaho’s Downtown District

Matt Wagner Commercial Projects

Mountain Home, ID — Located 40 miles southeast of Idaho’s capital, Boise, lives the growing small-town city of Mountain Home. Owner Eric Pierce and the team from SYNLawn Idaho recently modernized the downtown area by adding SYNLawn artificial grass as part of the City’s Downtown Revitalization Plan.

In recent years, the State of Idaho has seen a massive influx of new residents from California, making the Gem State one of the Nation’s most rapidly expanding populations. As the state grows, smaller cities, like Mountain Home, must accommodate incoming traffic without compromising their charm.

Choosing Synthetic Turf to Create a Durable, Natural-Looking Landscape

The City’s Mayor, Rich Sykes, chose synthetic turf to create a durable, natural-looking landscape in the downtown area that could withstand the increase in visitor foot traffic. The addition supports the city’s vision to be “a self-sustaining, uniquely diverse environment with a vibrant hometown feel, providing opportunities for future generations to thrive.”

Mayor Sykes and the Boise-based Guho Corp General Contractors Company connected with Mr. Pierce to select the perfect turf options for the project. The criteria the project planning group had in mind was to find an artificial grass option that wasn’t “too bright, green, or uniform” in color and style. The goal was to give the city sidewalks a natural look and feel using a surfacing option to handle the harsh environmental conditions of living in Idaho’s sometimes extreme climate.

Ultimately the project planning group selected SYNLawn’s SYNBlue 949 (SB949) as the perfect choice for the city’s beautification. Among the many features of the artificial grass was the ultra-realistic look and feel of the multi-colored grass blades, including field green, apple, and tan in the surface color. The SYNBlue landscape grass variety is amazingly soft to the touch between your toes and surprisingly durable.

Utilizing Synthetic Grass, a growing trend among municipalities

The Mountain Home Downtown Revitalization project’s use of synthetic landscaping grass reflects a growing trend among municipalities turning to alternative surfacing solutions to mitigate increasing utility and maintenance costs. The seven city blocks of upgraded landscape grass will provide residents with years of curbside beauty as well as save significantly on maintenance costs year after year for this project.
