Your toes are so ready to wiggle barefoot in the grass. Your dog is so ready to play Frisbee on the lawn. Your family is so looking forward to a season of tasty grilled dinners. But, no. There’s nothing worse than seeing your lovely, inviting backyard through the window and knowing that, if you go out there to enjoy the space, you’ll wind up being assaulted by your allergies instead.
Artificial grass can soothe your allergies
Millions of American adults and children are allergic to grass. Many specialists recommend that people with grass allergies remain indoors during pollen season. That’s just nuts! Who wants to be imprisoned by their sinuses – or any of the other myriad symptoms that can annoy and sicken you?
There are other ways you can try to manage your grass allergy, including resorting to drugs. But we think you’d rather focus on something more positive.
Like getting out there and enjoying yourself on and around your lawn. With artificial turf, you get an allergen-free surface. It doesn’t grow so it doesn’t produce pollen. And the turf itself is allergen-free and toxin-free, made with materials that are 100% safe for children and pets. You get a surface that’s fluffy and soft underfoot, rough-and-ready for serious play, and just plain pretty to look at. Nice.
Grass pollen isn’t the only problem
Natural grass is a haven for moisture. Water can accumulate in surface depressions when you water or it rains, and moisture can lurk in grass where shade discourages effective evaporation. Combine moisture with warm temperatures, and you have a perfect petri dish for growing mold and mildew. Just as you finally start to get past grass pollen allergy season, it’s time for mold and mildew allergy season. That can last well into fall. Ugh.
Some people are also hyper-sensitive to the fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides we typically apply to natural lawns to keep them green and growing. If that’s you, simply inhaling the fumes or getting a touch of residual chemicals on your skin can trigger all those hateful allergy symptoms.
And let’s not forget our pets. Cats and dogs can suffer just as terribly when it comes to grass allergies. And they can be equally sensitive to lawn care chemicals as well.
Investing in artificial grass is soothing in every way
Fake grass is a smart investment for home owners and anyone else that wants safer, healthier grass. That includes commercial properties and businesses, public parks, school fields and playgrounds, doggie daycare and boarding facilities. It also includes golf courses and practice areas. Finally, you can have that backyard putting green you’ve been dreaming about, without worrying it will make you sick instead of tightening up your short game.
Fake grass pays for itself in just a few short years, thanks to all the lawn care stuff you no longer have to buy and the water bill you no longer have to dread. Plus, a faux lawn is hassle-free. Allergy sufferers often have to hire someone else to mow and maintain their lawn, because mowing kicks up even more pollen and dust, aggravating symptoms. With artificial turf, no one will have to do that work.
So what’s always gorgeous and inviting and never makes you sick? Artificial grass. It can not only transform your personal outdoor living experience, it can transform your yard’s aesthetic appeal and play-time functionality for the entire family. Get out the grill and off with those socks!
