Reasons Why Artificial Grass is an Asset to Your Home

Artificial turf isn’t just for the football field. The artificial grass market is growing with synthetic turf covering over 50 million acres in the U.S., some of which are in residential areas. The increased use of residential artificial turf is due to new materials being used to create softer, more realistic-looking grass. Homeowners are realizing the many benefits of installing artificial grass, including how easy it is to care for once it is in.

 

What is Artificial Grass? 

Synthetic grass has come a long way from its first introduction decades ago. This type of grass is made from polypropylene plastic pellets, which are attached to a thatch layer for support. The synthetic turf then goes into a tufting machine that creates the look of blades of grass. Many homeowners are starting to use this material instead of natural grass. 

 

Save Time and Money

Artificial grass does not require any water or maintenance to keep its beautiful green color. That is less money spent on your water bill, and since there is no mowing involved, you do not need weekly service or to own a lawnmower if you do it yourself. When the leaves fall, simply sweep them off. 

 

Artificial Grass Stays Green

Think about the effort it takes to maintain a meticulously green lawn in the summer. Between treatments and constant watering, it can be almost impossible during the hot summer months. Artificial grass does not lose its color in the summer so when your neighbor’s lawns are brown by mid-July, yours is still a vibrant green, and remains that way throughout the year no matter what the weather. 

 

Eco-Friendly

With virtually no maintenance, the artificial turf is environmentally friendly. Using a broom to clean the area is all that is needed in terms of maintenance. Since it does not require any water, it conserves water. And, most artificial grass is made from recycled materials. 

 

Durable

Artificial lawns are more durable than natural lawns. Kids can play on the grass non-stop without ruining it. It can also be used as pet turf for a dog run. Most artificial turf lasts anywhere from 15-20 years meaning once you pay for the initial installation, you don’t have to worry about it again for a long time. 

 

Cleaner

After it rains, a natural lawn can be a muddy mess. Mud never gets into your house, pool, or car. Since there is no soil, there is no dirt associated with synthetic grass. Pet turf if a great way to keep your dog from tracking all the dirt from the lawn into the house and can be used as an easy way to clean up after a pet goes to the bathroom. 

 

With artificial grass, you can get the look and feel of natural grass without the time spent to maintain it. Install an artificial lawn and begin spending your time enjoying your yard instead of maintaining it.
