If you compare your synthetic turf to natural grass, then you will see the many benefits of having synthetic turf. Having synthetic turf is ideal for homes that are located in places where drought is common. All the year round, your lawn will be beautiful if you use synthetic turf. They look beautiful even without water.
Here are some of the benefits of using synthetic turf for your lawn.
Synthetic turf is very low maintenance. You don’t spend as much time taking care of a synthetic surf than you do real grass. So this also saves you time which you can use for other important activities.
Having synthetic turf is very cost effective and lasts very long. You might think that synthetic turf is expensive but wait until you see how it can increase your home’s value. If you divide the cost of the turf and installation over its life, then it will only be a few short years before your turf will pay for itself.
When people always walk across your lawn, it will create pathways, bares spots, or ruts. With synthetic turf, however, this does not happen even though many people trample upon it each day. The blades of the synthetic turf will simply bounce back and remain straight while the filler is in place.
Natural grass that is under the shade usually fades and dies. Sunlight is not important to synthetic turf. Part of the synthetic turf under the shade will not change size or color. Your synthetic turf will still look great even without sunlight and water.
Most synthetic turfs are safe for children because of their anti-bacterial properties that will not let germs and bacteria thrive and spread. If children play on artificial turf, you don’t have to fear that they will be exposed to harmful pesticides, toxic chemicals, or fertilizers used to maintaining your natural grass lawn.
You don’t need to buy and use fertilizer on synthetic turf. You will have a lush, green turf all year round. When fertilizers are used on natural lawns, it can be detrimental to our environment. It can result in an overgrowth of algae in rivers, ponds, streams, and lakes.
Sythetic turf is ideal for recreational areas. These areas can include tennis courts, bocce ball courts, putting greens, and patio surfaces. Even if there is heavy foot traffic in your recreational area, with synthetic turf this will not be a problem since it can resist wear and tear. You can also make it into unique shaped areas or areas in different patterns since you can cut and shape it.
You need to rinse your synthetic turf once in a while so that odors and dust build-up. You don’t need to water your synthetic surf regularly but only if you need to clean it. This is very ideal if you are living in an area where drought can be severe.
