It may come as a surprise to some but installing artificial turf can be better for the environment than natural grass! Turf reduces water consumption, improves drainage, lessens the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, reduces soil erosion and carbon emissions – no more mowing! Find out why more families are making the switch to synthetic turf solutions.
Less Maintenace/saves time- Turf reduces maintenance, providing you with long-term savings. With turf you can spend more time enjoying your yard without the mowing, edging, watering, seeding, or spraying. Plus, it stays green all year round!
Erosion and flooding benefits- A poor draining yard can be a homeowning nightmare. Consistent puddling not only leads to erosion but can also provide a haven for unwanted insects. While your natural grass is at the mercy of poorly draining soil, enhancements in artificial turf can improve drainage and minimize water runoff. Constructed with a porous backing, artificial turf was designed to filter water from the surface down into a complex sub-surface leach bed. From here the water either naturally dissipates or is directed to the nearest drainage system.
Say goodbye to biting yard pests! Natural grass can provide a habitat for many insects such as fleas, ticks, and ants. While your pet unknowingly plays in the yard, these unwanted guests can bite and grab onto their fur causing itching and irritation. Often you might not even be aware of their presence until they have travelled from your pet into your indoor living space. By installing artificial turf, you make it difficult for these pests to thrive. Saving both you and your furry best friend from any unwanted infestations.
Prevent muddy pet messes! Most dogs enjoy rolling through the grass and getting covered with mud after it rains. These muddy messes inevitably find their way onto your carpet and furniture. Artificial Pet Turf was specifically designed to allow water to naturally pass through to the soil, while eliminating the muddy conditions caused by rainstorms. Allowing your dog to use the bathroom, play and stay clean all at the same time!
What’s in your lawn care products? To achieve a green, well-maintained lawn. Homeowners are looking at a continuous cycle of fertilizers, growth regulators and pest control treatments such as insecticides and weed killers. These products contain toxic ingredients that can harm you, your family, and your pets. While still providing the realistic look and feel of grass, synthetic turf is the perfect nontoxic substitute.
Outdoor Allergies- Natural grass is full of pollen and other natural allergens. While many children suffer from seasonal and outdoor allergies, exposure from play areas can increase their chances of irritation. Artificial turf is a hygienic solution to help minimize allergic reactions from your child’s outdoor play spaces. Plus, no more annoying grass stains!
Why are more parents choosing artificial turf? Most playgrounds typically include wood chips, gravel, or concrete for their play surfaces. While widely used, these options are hard and can lead to an increased risk of injury from falls. Turf is a softer more durable substitute that absorbs the shock from a fall better than natural grass. Unlike woodchips, artificial turf blades are smooth, helping to prevent cuts and scrapes.
