An artificial lawn has many advantages that add to the beauty of your property while eliminating mowing and other maintenance time and cost.
Granted that synthetic grass and the preparation and installation is expensive, it is also long lasting, trouble free, and will eventually pay for itself. Since you don’t have to water, mow, trim, fertilize, pesticide, kill weeds, or reseed, it is expected to pay for itself in approximately eight years.
Think of the benefits of not taking the time and back-breaking effort and getting sore ears from listening to constant nerve-racking noise from mowers and blowers that are needed for the mowing and other constant chores associated with real grass. The synthetic turf only makes a whispery rustle on occasion.
Artificial grass like that made by Titan Turf looks natural because of the way it is assembled. It also feels natural to bare feet and on your pet’s paws! Plastic is used to create long smooth blades of grass that look like real grass. It is laid down like a carpet over ground that has been properly prepared by putting down and compressing sand and adding a drainage system. The lawn is rolled out in sheets in such a clever manner that it is impossible to see the seams or the darts in the corners. The best artificial grass is comprised of yarn or fibers that are quilted or tufted into a backing to create the normal appearance of an organic lawn plus a material that keeps the grass blades erect.
Regular grass is also a nightmare for both the lawn and the environment, especially if you live in a dry climate where drinkable water by the millions of gallons is dumped into lawns every day. Imagine the conservation of water with synthetic grass and how you will also reduce your carbon footprint.
Hundreds of thousands of gas-powered mowers that cut natural grass, as well as leaf blowers, put 11 times more pollution into the air every hour than a car does.
You can get synthetic lawn that’s summer long or putting-green short or in between. You can choose from dark green or light green and even choose the color of the springy underlayer. There are variegated strands that have some dark and some light to make it look real.
Synthetic turf is also perfect for landscaping around swimming pools with its superior drainage capabilities. Even property developers are looking to turf for lawn solutions these days.
Artificial turf looks like you just put in the world’s most realistic looking pristine sod and have created the most beautiful and colorful lawn. You can let people think you have an extremely green thumb and a silent, invisible mower!
