Benefits of Synthetic Turf for Landscaping
Many homeowners devote a lot of time and attention to the landscaping that surrounds their homes. And it takes a lot of energy (and dollar investment) to keep things looking great. On the other hand, synthetic turf looks great year-round – without the work, effort, or maintenance.
Without ongoing maintenance, natural grass tends to lose its appeal as it yellows and fades in the heat of the summer. That’s why many homeowners are turning to artificial residential turf. And they’re reaping the many benefits – from enhanced aesthetics to minimal maintenance.
Compared with Natural Grass
The benefits of artificial grass really stand out when compared to natural residential turf. In fact, more and more homeowners are opting for the artificial alternative based on the benefits derived.
With synthetic turf, there’s no need for watering, so water bills are reduced dramatically during the spring and summer. There are virtually no maintenance costs compared to natural grass, as there is no need for fertilizing or weed killers.
Never Any Weeds
Artificial turf doesn’t need to be fertilized to keep it lush and green. The landscape stays vibrant and beautiful without the application of chemical fertilizers or weed killers. This is also good for the environment since chemicals are toxic.
Installing artificial grass is a cost-effective option over the long term. With a high-quality product and professional installation, the landscape stays intact for years to come. And other than regular wear and tear, there is no deterioration.
Artificial turf offers a host of applications, both indoor and outdoor. Apart from the conventional lawn, it’s possible to install turf on decking, balconies, terraces, and even pathways. Creative applications include walls and stairs.
With today’s technology improvements, artificial grass is available in various colours, shades, densities, and pile heights. The beauty, of course, is that installations can be customized to suit specific homeowner requirements.
With artificial turf, indoor and outdoor spaces can be fully customized to reflect personal taste and design. The materials can be custom cut to fit a space, particularly when there are unique or unusual installation areas.
With a bit of creativity, artificial grass can be sized and shaped to suit even the most creatively inspired application. In fact, high-quality turf can be installed on virtually any surface, including wood, concrete, and even dirt.
