Artificial turf isn’t restricted to the football field or putting green. More and more homeowners are taking advantage of artificial grass in their own backyard – and for good reasons. Not only is there a lot to gain with artificial turf, but this lawn choice can also eliminate most of the hassles and setbacks of natural grass.
At Woodburn Landscapes, we are proud to offer artificial turf installation. Here are 8 good reasons to make the switch for your yard this year:
#1 No Maintenance.
There’s no need to mow, weed, fertilize or water artificial turf, so you’ll have plenty of time to actually enjoy your lawn instead of maintain it.
#2 No Puddling.
Artificial turf is placed on level ground with its own small irrigation channels to help it drain effectively after rainfall.
#3 No Grass Stains.
Tired of washing grass stains from your children’s pants. Let your kids slide across artificial turf without worry of staining.
#4 No Bare Spots
It’s nearly impossible to really use your natural grass lawn without having bare spots and ruts in areas where there is high foot traffic or play equipment. Artificial turf is more resilient with blades that bounce back despite the heavy traffic.
#5 No Concern About Shade
If your lawn is mostly shaded, you may have a hard time growing natural grass. Synthetic grass, however, doesn’t need direct sunlight to maintain its appearance or condition.
#6 Drought Resistant
Your irrigation system is another element you can do without when you have artificial turf. While you’ll need to rinse off your synthetic grass occasionally, it won’t need regular water/irrigation. In fact, artificial turf is perfect for drought-prone areas.
#7 Safe for Children and Pets
Did you know that many artificial turf brands contain an anti-bacterial to help prevent the spreads of germs? Children and pets can also play on artificial turf without fear of being exposed to harmful pesticides, fertilizers or other toxic chemicals used in natural grass maintenance.
#8 Cost Effective
Most people balk at the upfront cost of artificial turf. However, this should carefully be weighed with the long-term savings you’ll gain from not having to maintain your natural grass. You can typically expect your turf to pay for itself in 2-4 short years!
