Planning a Landscape Renovation with Artificial Grass
With springtime around the corner, it’s an ideal time to start planning a complete landscape renovation with artificial grass. We already know about artificial turf in sports fields, golf courses, and playgrounds – and today the application is also recommended for home yards.
Artificial grass provides a host of benefits for a residential yard. In fact, landscapers have been touting the advantages for many years. More recently, homeowners in many regions of the country are installing artificial turf to ensure a well-manicured lawn around the year.
WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS?
Artificial grass is made of synthetic fibres that look like real blades of grass. In the early 1970s, artificial turf was commonly used in many sports stadiums and public spaces. For the average homeowner it’s a good idea to choose a quality product from a reliable installer.
With installation, there’s no question that a professional installer do the work. There are a number of steps required, and it takes expertise to design, prepare, and install the entire surface area. There’s no room for mistakes, so a DIY approach would be highly undesirable.
THE BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL TURF
For residential landscaping, the main benefit of synthetic grass is aesthetic. In both urban and rural regions it’s the best way to ensure a beautiful lawn all year round. The grass is perfectly manicured all of the time, and with relatively no maintenance.
By any measure, synthetic grass is easy to maintain. It’s not a problem if there’s too much water – or not enough. And it’s not a problem if there’s too much sun – or not enough. The fact is, there’s little maintenance, with no need to water, weed, or mow.
Synthetic grass is also a money saver – no need to consume volumes of water – no need for fertilizing – and no need for landscaping services. Even with the upfront installation costs, the economical advantages are long term, with savings year after year.
Finally, synthetic grass is environmentally friendly. You’re not “wasting” water. You’re not polluting with herbicides and pesticides. And you’re not washing away harmful chemicals. As well, children and pets are not exposed to any harmful substances.
COUNTLESS LANDSCAPING IDEAS
From back yard to front yard to patio area, there are countless landscaping ideas for every home. Some homeowners choose to create a comfortable outdoor dining area. Some prefer to enhance a patio areas or deck. And some decide on a lush environment around the pool.
Pet owners can also benefit from synthetic grass, and stop their animals from ruining areas of natural grass. The surface is pet-friendly and can be odour-free with only minimal care. Winter and summer, the artificial surface is the ideal environment for pets of all sizes.
In terms of creativity, the options are also unlimited. Many homeowners create fabulous elements around walkways and outdoor seating areas. It’s also the perfect way to highlight exterior landscaping pieces. The beauty, of course, is the aesthetic appeal all year round.
