How to End Your Burnt Grass Problems with Artificial Turf
Achieving a pristine green lawn is easier said than done. Well-kept natural lawns are incredibly demanding and finicky. Too much water can be a problem; too little water can be a problem, leaving property owners frustrated with the time, energy, and money invested.
Despite its complexities, many property owners around the city still, understandably, aspire to achieve perfect landscaping, so they turn to synthetic turf in Toronto to mitigate the common setbacks often encountered with natural grass landscaping. One of the most frustrating interferences with perfect landscaping is burnt grass. When you switch to artificial turf, you can say goodbye to burnt grass for good.
Have you been plagued with burnt grass because of the following? See how artificial turf from Echoing Green can help.
The most well-understood cause of dry burnt grass is extended exposure to the sun. Direct contact with intense ultraviolet light emitted by the sun can heat up grass throughout the day, causing it to wither and burn. This poses a significant problem during the city’s hot summer days when property owners want their landscaping to offer maximum curb appeal. By replacing natural grass with synthetic turf in Toronto, you can defend your landscaping against the powerful heat and light. Designed with UV protection, high-quality European artificial turf from Echoing Green can withstand years of sun exposure.
Fertilizers were made to help natural grass grow lush, vibrant, and healthy, but a lot of the time, it can have the opposite effect, leaving yards patchy, yellow, and burnt with improper use. For fertilizer to be most effective, it must be applied at the right time of day (based on external factors) and distributed evenly throughout the lawn. However, it’s challenging for homeowners to coordinate fertilization into busy schedules and unpredictable weather conditions, especially without the right tools, resources, and times available. More often than not, a property owner can do all their due diligence and still end up with fertilizer-induced burns in their landscaping.
You can ditch the fertilizer with synthetic turf in Toronto, which is non-toxic and needs no chemical enhancements. Once artificial turf installation is complete, synthetic lawns from Echoing Green offer the sensation and texture of healthy natural grass all on their own. In addition to keeping landscaping free of unsightly burns, it also makes yards safer for kids and pets who want to play.
Similar to fertilizers, nitrogen compounds found in dog urine can exist in high concentrations, which can build up in the grass and cause it to burn. Sometimes, pet owners have a hard time determining if this is the cause of their lawn trouble and end up overwatering or over-fertilizing their lawn to compensate. If you want landscaping catered to your four-legged family, synthetic turf in Toronto is the way to go. At Echoing Green, we stock specially-made pet turf designed specifically for dogs. You can also shop our non-toxic artificial turf disinfectant, AquaKlor, to help keep your turf odour and bacteria-free.
If the grass roots die, the grass will have no way of accessing water in the ground to sustain itself. There are many reasons roots die, such as disease, insect infestation or rotting. Overwatering your lawn can lead to oversaturation, inviting insects and disease to the base of your grass. Since synthetic turf is free of roots and needs no water to survive, you can ensure healthy-looking artificial grass without worrying about your watering schedule. In addition to its low maintenance nature, artificial turf from Echoing Green is also built for superior drainage to help water flow through the ground efficiently without building up at the surface.
At Echoing Green, we supply high-performance synthetic turf in Toronto and elsewhere in Canada to help combat the drawback of natural landscaping.
