GILBERT, Ariz., March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Synthetic Grass Warehouse donated American-made TigerTurf Diamond Pro Fescue artificial grass to the new home of Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg, U.S. Army Ranger and Arizona native. In the span of one day, the synthetic turf was installed in Sergeant Remsburg's front lawn and backyard by East Valley-based landscaping company Accent Landscaping.
"This event was a great opportunity to give back to our troops and be a part of something special," said Accent Landscaping owner Scott Williamson. "It was amazing to see the community come together and make an impact for Sergeant Remsburg and his family."
While deployed in Afghanistan, Sergeant Remsburg and his platoon suffered a devastating roadside bomb. The IED left Remsburg with severe head injuries and rendered him comatose for three months. Through Jared Allen Homes for Wounded Warriors, Remsburg received a specially designed house that meets all of his needs.
