Imagine a lush, verdant lawn, untouched by
the ravages of oppressive water costs and
the tyrannical Miami sun. Luis Barrios and the
good people of MBM Grass can make just
such a dream a reality.

If you’ve purchased a high-end home in the last few
years, you might have run into neighbors and realtors
asking you a surprising question: Have you considered
artificial grass? Long viewed as the sole province of
sports stadiums and welcome mats, artificial grass is
inching its way into the finer homes of Miami-Dade,
and Luis Barrios and his company MBM Grass couldn’t
be more excited. An entrepreneur who studied French
and Finance at UM, Barrios is excited about the benefits
his product offers homeowners. “I’d love to increase
the greenspace in Miami,” he says, explaining that the
reduced watering needs and little-to-no maintenance
guarantees a lower environmental impact than regularly
well-kept lawns; MBMGrass.com.
