Many of us have seen artificial turf on sports fields, but have you ever thought about the benefits of having artificial turf in your own backyard? Artificial turf has been adopted by residents interested in drought-tolerant landscaping that offers both beautiful curb appeal and space for family, pets, and guests. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of artificial turf and how it might impact your landscaping.
Artificial Turf Doesn’t Need Water or Maintenance
Unlike sod or natural grasses, artificial turf requires no maintenance to maintain it’s beautiful green appearance. No weekly mowing, just lay the turf in place and forget it. When the autumn leaves fall, just sweep them off.
One of the best things about artificial turf is its low-maintenance nature. The best part is artificial turf will remain the same color year around and look good no matter which season it is.
It allows you to focus more on the things you enjoy doing in your yard, like hosting parties, barbecues, and spending time with your family.
It’s Environmentally Friendly
Since the product requires no maintenance from gas or electric-powered lawn equipment, artificial turf is more eco-friendly than even natural grass. A simple sweeping with a broom will clear away most any debris or soil from the tip of the turf and have it looking great in no time.
In addition, artificial grass never needs toxic chemicals to protect its health. Not only are these chemicals dangerous for your kids and pets who often come in to direct contact when playing on the lawn, but they also contaminate runoff water systems and have a negative impact on the environment.
Artificial Landscape Will Save You Money
In addition to the expense of monthly maintenance, including mowing, fertilizers, and sod, natural grass needs water... a lot of it.
Artificial turf doesn’t require any of this, which frees you to use that chunk of your monthly budget elsewhere.
Cost Effective Replacement
When it’s time to replace artificial turf, the process is less expensive and easier than replacing a landscape with grass seeds or sod. If the turf being replaced still has some life in it, it can be recycled for other uses in the landscape, such as creating weed-free garden paths or dog runs, making the product even more cost effective to use and replace when needed.
The benefits of artificial turf outweigh those of natural grass, especially if you’re living in an area affected by the devastating water crisis. If you’re interested in saving money, conserving water, and creating a home with exceptional curb appeal, artificial turf may be the option you’re seeking. Artificial turf provides the same beautiful look a nd bounce as natural grass, without the expense.
