Summer means barbecues, family gatherings, and hanging out by the pool. Realistically, it entails hours mowing the lawn plus outrageous water bills trying to keep it green.  But what if you could enjoy your lawn all year round without having to worry about the maintenance it requires? Nick Ogilvie, Celina resident and owner of Luxe Blades, says synthetic turf is an affordable and durable alternative with the look of natural grass while helping the environment.

Luxe Blades is “luxury in every step” – a luxurious turf for your residential or commercial lawn. Complete with an extended life expectancy (outlasting the fifteen-year warranty), it keeps cool even in Texas extreme heat and safer for pets and children with germs washed away unlike natural lawns. Nick Ogilvie states Luxe Blades is better for the environment, draining better than real grass and eliminating the need to water your lawn thus saving water and money.  Moreover, it likewise reduces the presence of chemicals, mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks in the yard.  

Commercial businesses benefit from Luxe Blades as it lowers lawn maintenance costs and creates an aesthetically pleasing appearance. In fact, Nick has over 16 years in the commercial industry with clients such as the NFL, Disney, and Hard Rock Hotels.

But don’t be misled, Luxe Blades is a good investment and affordable as it pays for itself usually within four years merely from the water bill savings. Furthermore, Luxe Blades increases a home’s resale value.  

Need to work on your short game? One of Luxe Blades most popular items is lavish putting greens. In fact, Nick was the first person in the United States to ever build a golf course out of artificial turf! He created it in River Falls just outside of Canyon, Texas. Nick became familiar with that area while a student at West Texas A&M. He said it’s Luxe Blades’ niche within a niche as he can literally “build the exact golf green from your favorite golf course” all within your own backyard. Locally, you may have seen Luxe Blades at “The Greens” at the Little Wooden Penguin or at the new Tender BBQ in Aubrey. 

Speaking of local, Nick and his wife, Anessia, enjoy life in Celina. Nick is active in the community participating in Master Networks and as a member of the Celina Chamber of Commerce. The Ogilvies enjoy attending Friday Night Markets on the Celina Square as well as golfing and traveling. They also believe in the giving back to the community. Luxe Blades was featured on the news as they cleaned and disinfected the Celina High School football field during Covid to help keep players safe. 

Nick Ogilvie focuses on the customer experience, not just customer service. He says the customer does not pay until satisfied with the product and result. Luxe Blades can keep your lawn looking and feeling cool for many more summers ahead, and that is Nick Ogilvie’s goal, to give his customers “instant grassification” and a luxurious lawn.
