NewGrass Helps Family Find Balance on The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television

Monday, June 30th, 2008

The Balancing Act on LifetimeFort Worth, Texas – When the national TV show The Balancing Act wanted to help one busy family find more enjoyable time outdoors at home and do it in a safe and eco-friendly way, NewGrass® artificial grass was a big part of the solution.

NewGrass® will be featured an episode of The Balancing Act episode airing on Lifetime Television on July 17 at 7 a.m. Eastern, 6 a.m. Central and Mountain time.

The Balancing Act is an original, informative, magazine-style half-hour television series hosted by Dr. Wendy Walsh, Kim Alexis, Kathy Peterson and Maria Bailey.

The show is geared toward women who are juggling career and home, wanting to “get it right” when it comes to health, family, finances and lifestyle, according to the show’s web site.
“We’ve always been aware of the big role women play when it comes to making design and spending choices for improving the home environment, and that includes landscaping and play areas,” said NewGrass® President Greg Goehner, who is interviewed in the segment. “The Balancing Act audience is well-served by learning about an alternative like NewGrass®.”

“Could your grass be greener?” host Wendy Walsh asks at the top of the upcoming segment featuring NewGrass®. “You might just need to re-think how green your green is …. As more and more neighborhoods face water restrictions, and we become more concerned about air and water pollution, you may be in need for a good water-saving, environmentally conscious alternative.”

NewGrass® is proud to be an ally in the EPA’s GreensScape Program and the only artificial lawn that is Certified 100% Eco-Friendly, from the way it is manufactured to the company’s pledge to properly recycle any NewGrass® lawn at the end of its usable life, at no cost to the customer.

Lifetime Television is a leader in women’s television and one of the top-rated basic cable television networks. Launched in 1984, Lifetime now serves 96 million households nationwide and is TV’s most popular women’s network.

NewGrass® has also been featured on Bob Vila and Fine Living TV’s American Shopper, and a special Think Green episode of Designing Spaces on The Learning Channel.

Movie and a Makeover on TBSFort Worth, Texas – NewGrass® synthetic lawn has again proven to be the perfect solution for a unique landscape challenge, this time helping transform a barren downtown rooftop into an attractive outdoor living space for the TBS television show Movie & A Makeover.

The Movie & A Makeover episode featuring NewGrass® artificial grass airs on TBS this Saturday, June 7, at 12:45 p.m. ET.

The projects range from fashion and beauty tips to dramatic home and garden projects, like the one this Saturday. Jungle2Jungle is the movie that will accompany the makeover of an Atlanta rooftop that includes NewGrass®.

The space goes from being empty, industrial and uninviting to being comfortable, green and attractive outdoor entertaining center. In fact, it becomes a space the whole neighborhood will use.

“Synthetic grass on a rooftop is the perfect way to evoke a park-like outdoor feeling ten stories up in the heart of downtown,” Flynn said. “Brands such as NewGrass® are self-draining, fade-resistant and require no maintenance. So you get the look and feel of fresh cut lawn without all the hassle.”
