Turf.  L: Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia  Click Here for Turf Sizes and Prices>>

repurposedCUSTOMER:  "This 3 story heavy timber loft style building was erected in 1863 and has had many lives, surviving the Chicago fire for one.  It sits on the edge of downtown where this view of the beautiful Chicago skyline can be seen.  You can see the raised bed gardens where we are growing organic vegetables and flowers. While the roof has always been great for 'stealing' some outside space in the city- the addition of your Turf has made it all usable and so beautiful.  The Turf even protects the roof and helps stabilize water run off.  We are thrilled!!!" - R.S. in Chicago
