Fake Grass Popularity Is Due to Its No-Maintenance Blended With Luxury and Beauty

Nov 16th 2015 at 2:19 AM

Artificial lawns are the best options for people living in low-water region or by those homeowners, who are tired of regular lawn maintenance. Homeowners are saving water, time, gasoline, and effort (their backs) installing mock grass in lawns, play areas, dog runs, roof tops, pool surrounds, as patio pavers and putting greens.

What is fake grass?

Non-natural grass includes filaments threaded into supports (backing) that drain water through. The backing is placed on the drainage layer and fixed firmly along the perimeter. It’s then filled with sand or recycled crumb rubber, so that it does not blow away during extreme windy conditions.

Synthetic grass is created from different shades of green colored polyethylene, nylon, or polypropylene material.

Financial talk

The initial cost is expensive, but once installed, it’s free for next two decades. On the other hand, professionally laid sod is very less, but you have to regularly mow, fertilize, and water natural grass. All these functions cost funds and take time.

Good points related to fake grass

  • Fake grass does not need water, maintenance, or seeding.
  • It reduces the impact on environment because it encourages fuel and water conservation.
  • In addition, there is no air or water pollution due to insecticides or chemical fertilizers.
  • Even vast sport ground synthetic turfs do not end up in landfills because they are removed and recycled.

Advantages of fake grass lawns

  • Being synthetic, they are water-resistant
  • Even if water or cold drinks get spilled, there is no need to worry
  • No concern about soil insects or worm bothering you
  • It looks good all the year round
  • Some water companies provide cash rebate for installing fake grass

Drawback of synthetic grass

  • Pet owners have to hose off regularly because the artificial turf cannot absorb pet urine
  • Dry leaves have to be raked to keep it looking fresh and beautiful

Synthetic grass for playgrounds

Nothing is more vital than kid safety. Most injuries occurring on playgrounds are due to fall on hard, abrasive, or plain unsafe surfaces. Synthetic turf suppliers Florida has designed a system that protects children from 9 feet high falls, in accordance to fall attenuation legal standards.

Traditional options including gravel, mulch, and sand fail, when the subject is about consistent safety protection. High traffic areas like under the swings or circling merry-go-round or landing of slide have a tendency to dislodge the material. Thus the hard ground beneath it exposes.

Infill product is blended with shock absorbers (crumb rubber) and ballast (raw sand) performance decreases environment and health concern. The surface temperature is reduced by 20°F to 30°F.

  • Fake playground lawns are safe and durable
  • Natural grass may possibly create allergies in some kids
  • In monsoon season the patio or indoors is safe from muddy patches
  • Always looks manicured and fresh
  • Promotes sensory and motor development in kids

Field turf synthetic grass

Turf fields increase playability because they allow having access to playground for practice, as soon as the rain stops. Practices slated on natural grass fields are eliminated because it ruins the ground for that particular season. Gallons of water needed to maintain organic grass every week is saved.
