Choosing Artificial grass

Hello and thanks to all in advance!
I am in the middle of tearing up my back yard in order to install artificial grass. I live in Southern Cal, no pets, and mainly want to install it for low maintenance. I also have a 3 year old that will be playing on it. There seems to be many choices and I am honestly overwhelmed with deciding. Can anyone make any recommendations?

Re: Choosing Artificial grass

I have no experience and thought about taking our lawn out and doing this. Decided not to. Too expensive. $3 to $6 a sq.ft., plus labor. Go to for info on preparation for this. Do-it-yourself or hire a contractor ?

Amazon has PetZen lawn and similar items for $3 a sq.ft., approx. You can buy one piece and see for your self. Think some can get hot in sun for your 3 y/o. Maybe 1-3/4 inch blades will cool the surface more than shorter blades.
