Pros To Using Artificial Grass
A bright green lush lawn is always the envy of the neighbourhood, but as homeowners, we know that achieving that dream comes with a lot of hard work and maintenance - between cutting, trimming, aerating, spraying, and weeding, a beautiful lawn can start to feel like a part-time job. Fieldmasters delivers stunning turf grass in Toronto with no work in it for you. If you’re sick of mowing the lawn and want your relaxation time returned, artificial turf may be the way to go.
The Pros of Turf Grass
There’s no need to water, weed, or trim artificial turf grass - just some occasional raking and removing of leaves, twigs, or other debris.
Today’s artificial turf isn’t at all like the astroturf granny had in the ‘70s - today’s modern turf grass can stand up to high levels of wear and tear from kids, pets, and foot traffic.
A plus for many folks is that a turf grass installation can eliminate the effects of grass allergies.
It’s Green - All Year Long
If you have a lawn affected by shade, trees, grubs, or other problems that cause yellow or dry spots, artificial turf can keep your yard looking green all year long. On average, turf grass experiences only a 1-2% colour change over the years, making it an excellent long-term option.
Watering the lawn can use up significant water resources - and be costly. An artificial turf never needs watering and can save approximately 35,000 gallons of water a year.
Should I Install Artificial Turf Grass in Toronto?
While making the decision to install turf grass in Toronto is difficult, it’s important to remember that it can come with a few disadvantages. But before these disadvantages deter you, we're here to debunk some of your fears.
It Can Increase the Risk of Flooding
If your home is in a low-lying area or neighbourhood prone to flooding, turf grass can contribute to water build-up or flash floods. Because it doesn’t absorb water as natural grass does, water can collect under the installation base or be pushed towards your home. Keep in mind though this issue only arises for those living in natural-flooding areas.
Large Upfront Costs
Installing turf grass in Toronto does have a large up-front cost, but the costs average out over the 20-30 years your turf will last. Whereas, regular grass requires regular maintenance and upkeep that can end up costing more in the long run.
Artificial turf does hold more heat than a natural lawn - which can make it quite warm to the touch. But when are you ever really touching the grass that this would matter?
There are many reasons to consider installing a turf grass lawn in Toronto. It’s great for kids and pets, there’s little to no maintenance, and you’re guaranteed a beautiful green lawn all year round. At Fieldmasters, we’ve got a variety of colours, textures, and different turf options to suit every yard, big or small. Looking for a private putting green? We can help! Thinking about installing no-fuss turf around your pool? Turf grass is perfect for that too.
