The Benefits of Artificial Turf

Artificial-Lawn-TurfSummer time is the worst! I’m not talking about the the constant warmth and relaxing by the swimming pool. I’m referring to the constant upkeep and yard work involved during this seasonal weather. Watering, mowing, weed eating, and trimming are not in my vocabulary, so I was rather excited when the notion of grass that is beautifully green and the same length year round popped into my head. Today, we will be discussing the benefits of using artificial turf in your yard.

The Benefits of Artificial Turf

Surprisingly enough artificial turf is not a concept that is foreign. If you think about it, you probably walk on it a little more than you know. Besides sporting venues, it is becoming more and more common to carry this commercial solution to grass to the residential level. You see it covering golf courses, parks, playgrounds and baseball fields and many times it is hardly noticeable that it is not really grass.



Unlike its natural counterpart, most artificial turf is allergen free. If you have a child that loves to go outside that suffers from allergies, then you know how much of a pain this can be. When staying out of the grass is hard to do, this can be a blessing. This is definitely an alternative to keeping yourself and your children dosed with allergy medication the whole spring and summer seasons.


Chemical Cut-Down:

As we are becoming more and more aware of our surroundings, we are realizing that the amount of chemicals that are in our environment are ridiculous. To have a beautiful lawn you are often required to use chemicals that are incredibly harsh to your environment, family and pets. Artificial turf eliminates the need for chemicals such as: fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and insecticides.



Artificial turf for the most part is completely non-toxic. I say most part because one can never be entirely certain. But because I have researched I can tell you that majority of the manufacturer’s are definitely non-toxic. This mean pets and family will not have issues.



Speaking of pets, I know what you are thinking. “What if my pet goes potty on it?”

Well, that may not be how you say it, but you catch my drift. The answer is that it will be completely fine. The drainage process of artificial turf is remarkably similar to natural grass. During the drainage process tiny holes in the backing of the turf will drain water absorbing it into the sand below the turf. This 100% porous solution to grass is life like on most levels, including animal waste.


Rest Easy:

Finally my favorite benefit, just relax! For all of you who know what it is like to spend the entire day on the weekend working more on your lawn than enjoying it, take a seat. No more yard work! You won’t have to worry about dry spots in the yard or muddy holes when it rains too much. Enjoy it!
