Why Turf for Backyards is Great for the Elderly
No matter what your age, we all want to enjoy an inviting backyard with pristine and lush grass. However maintaining the perfect balance of water, chemicals, and care to achieve a perfect natural grass backyard comes with many challenges and a significant time and financial commitment. While these drawbacks are a nuisance to anybody, they can be even more frustrating for the elderly. Fortunately, there’s an alternative in Echoing Green’s artificial turf for backyards, which allows the elderly to have the ideal backyard without any of the tedious work.
Here’s why artificial turf for backyards is a great fit for the elderly!
With artificial grass in Toronto, you can say goodbye to your daily maintenance routine. Labour intensive watering, mowing, raking, fertilizing, and weeding can all be a thing of a past. You don’t have to strain yourself to care for your lawn with artificial grass in Toronto, instead, you can repurpose all of that time enjoying your backyard adding new decor, entertaining, or just lounging.
Traditional backyard landscaping and hardscaping can make for uneven and hazardous surfaces especially as the years progress or the weather changes. Sudden declines and inclinations in the ground can easily cause trips, slips, and falls, which on a hard surface like paving bricks can be incredibly painful. When you opt for artificial grass in Toronto, our expert installation team will ensure a flat surface that will last for years. With the right tools and technique, from infill to fasteners, artificial turf for backyards will remain neatly on the ground. Even with time and inclement weather, artificial turf will not bubble or lift.
In addition to artificial grass installation, EchoPlay, Echoing Green’s advanced under padding will add fall protection and shock absorbency that cushions slips, trips, and falls, reducing the impact of any accidents that might occur. Shock-absorbent under padding can be the difference between a broken bone on hardscaping and a scrape or bruise.
Bacteria and Mold Resistant
Natural grass drainage is often insufficient because of clogs from organic material and oversaturation resulting in mud, puddles, and standing backed up water. Stagnant water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, bacteria, and mold. Contamination from any of these factors can lead to negative health effects from allergies to infections. But, when water can drain efficiently, bacteria is washed away, mold spores are repelled, and pests look elsewhere for a home. Synthetic turf for backyards is designed and installed with bacteria-resistant infill to ensure your home remains a safe space, you can enjoy comfortably.
Not only does a natural lawn require ample amounts of maintenance to ensure your lawn flourishes, but it can also become quite costly, whether you’re taking care of it yourself or hiring lawn maintenance services. With artificial grass, you can stop spending on mowers, gasoline, fertilizers, and pesticides. By no longer watering your grass every evening, you will also see a significant decline in your monthly water bill.
Artificial grass in backyards is easy, and the installation process is no different. Our trusted and experienced landscape contractors at Echoing Green will take care of the entire process using our years of experience and specialty tools. Once installed, synthetic turf for your backyard will last decades without deterioration.
