Six Reasons to Consider Artificial Turf
Spring is here and it’s time to get back outside and start enjoying the warm weather. Homeowners across the country are turning towards artificial turf as a grass alternative for their yards; maybe you’ve even seen some in your own neighborhood. Curious what all the buzz is about? Read on to learn more about the benefits of installing artificial turf in your yard.
No maintenance. One of the biggest benefits of artificial turf is that it doesn’t require routine maintenance. That means no mowing, edging, trimming, or seeding. This saves valuable time over the course of a year and allows you to spend more time enjoying your lawn rather than maintaining it. Another benefit: you won’t need to store and maintain lawn care equipment with artificial turf.
Cost effective. An artificial lawn can last for 15 to 20 years. With no grass to cut you won’t have to buy new lawn care equipment or pay a lawn service to take care of your yard. You also won’t need to water your lawn to keep it healthy. The savings add up quickly!
No puddles. Rainstorms are no match for artificial turf. During the installation process, the ground is smoothed out to eliminate low lying areas. Sometimes irrigation channels are also added to help drain excess water or special mats are used in problem areas to prevent puddling. No puddles means that your yard will be back in business almost immediately after a storm. As an added bonus, the lack of puddles also keeps bugs and pests away.
No bare spots. Artificial turf is a good choice for areas of your lawn that don’t grow grass well or that are subject to a lot of foot traffic. The durable blades of artificial grass can ensure a uniform look throughout your entire yard with no bare spots.
Safe for kids and pets. Artificial turf is made mainly from plastic and nylon, making it a non-toxic choice that’s safe for kids and pets. It also eliminates the need to use fertilizers and other chemicals on your lawn. In addition, artificial lawns have a padding underneath which makes for a soft landing for falls or outdoor play.
Looks great all year long. Artificial turf provides a consistent look all year long, no matter where you live. You can say goodbye to burned out grass in the summer and a browning yard in the winter, and enjoy the beauty of a lush, green lawn every day.
