"Michael Lehrer is changing the game of golf one high-rolling backyard at a time. Lehrer, who's a certified public accountant, left his 80 hour-a-week number-crunch-ing job in 1996 to create Home Green Advantage, a company that installs natural and synthetic greens for clients ranging from Fortune 500 CEOs to former NFL All-Pro Ahmad Rashad. Lehrer, who has been contacted by both Hillary Clinton and Mel Gibson, has installed more than 100 putting greens in the past four years—from backyards and basements to rooftops and office spaces.
Lehrer constructed the slippery 100 foot putting surface for Maximum Golf's May 23 launch party at the Central Park boathouse in New York. The $1 million contest was aced by British Airways executive Woody Harford. So what are Lehrer's plans for the future? "I'd like to float a putting green in the Hudson River," he says, "and throw another Maximum Golf party."— Wendy Straker

"I love that my grass isn't brown all winter long anymore. I have given your name to a few associates and will continue to recommend HGA."

“I put the synthetic lawn in for my dog, but I must say that I enjoy it too. I can let my dog out, sit back and watch him play around… and know that I never have to mow the lawn again. It’s always green and very real looking. GREAT COMPANY, GREAT PRODUCT, GREAT INVESTMENT!”

“I had many questions regarding the installation and benefits of a synthetic lawn for dogs. Michael Lehrer had all the answers. Not only are my dogs extremely happy with it, but so am I.”
N. Merritt - Stamford, CT
“Before we had the synthetic lawn installed the grass always looked run down and muddy. Our dogs are small, but very active. Now our yard is green all year long and needs minimal attention. The dogs love it and I do too. Thanks HGA!"
