Why Install Artificial Grass in the Winter for Your Balcony
While there is a lot to do during the winter in Southern Ontario, a significant amount of time is spent indoors, avoiding frigid winds, heavy snowfall, and temperatures that often drop below freezing. Despite the cold weather, a little time outside is essential. Artificial grass in Toronto is a great way to make your outdoor space more cozy and comfortable for the winter. With high-quality artificial grass installation from the trusted team at Echoing Green, you can upgrade your balcony for a beautiful aesthetic that survives the winter and looks great too.
Here’s why you should consider artificial grass for balconies this winter.
Balconies are typically made of thick concrete slabs for stability and security. In the winter, when water from rain, sleet, and melted snow accumulates on the bare concrete surface, it is likely to freeze when temperatures drop below 0ºC, creating thick layers of ice that are difficult to see. The higher your balcony, the more ice becomes a risk as the temperatures get colder.
Using artificial grass in Toronto, you can replace the smooth, slippery concrete surface with a textured turf that facilitates water drainage, discouraging water from freezing. When you choose Echoing Green for your artificial grass installation, you can opt for a shock-absorbing underlay to be placed below the surface of your turf to soften the blow in the case of an unexpected slip.
While some condo-dwellers opt for natural grass on rooftops and balconies, it can quickly succumb to cold temperatures, turning yellow and becoming patchy during the winter until it requires replacement the following year. Even newly grown grass often has trouble growing as lush and vibrant without intense maintenance and fertilization, especially when it is multiple stories high. Artificial grass for balconies is a long-lasting alternative that keeps its colour throughout the winter regardless of the weather.
It’s no secret that dogs love rolling around in the grass. But when you live in a condo, accessing the grass during the winter is difficult. Besides trekking up and down through your building, you have to walk until you find a park with exposed green space, which can be impossible in the thick of winter when snow blankets the city. Pet turf from Echoing Green can be installed on balconies in the city to enable easy-access green space for pets and their owners. With easy artificial grass installation, our Echo 60 turf features densely packed synthetic fibres that mimic the texture of healthy lawns, creating an inviting environment for your dog. Throughout the winter, artificial grass in Toronto from Echoing Green can also serve as a potty pad for your pup for even greater convenience.
