How Artificial Turf Can Withstand Heavy Summer Use

How_Artificial_Turf_Can_Withstand_Heavy_Summer_UseDuring the winter, your lawn’s job is to look beautiful, providing a lovely finishing touch to your landscape to make your home attractive and welcoming. But come summer, your lawn morphs into Action HQ. When you have artificial turf, no matter how much action the summer brings, your yard’s appearance will never suffer.

Let’s be honest. Your lawn doesn’t look that good, anyway.

Severe drought has taken its toll on our entire state. Years of miniscule rain amounts and steadily increasing water restrictions have pushed your grass to the breaking point. And grass under stress looks haggard. The brown patches are getting bigger. The ground underneath your lawn is hard. It’s an unfriendly surface – no fun to walk on, let alone play on.

Unfortunately, unless you switch to artificial turf, it’s only going to get worse. You don’t want to be the neighbor caught surreptitiously watering at 1am in a desperate attempt to keep your lawn alive. You could be fined as much as $500, plus you’ll become the neighborhood poster boy (or girl) for unsustainable behavior. It’s not worth it.

Transform your landscape with artificial turf and regain your summer.

Not only will you get rid of that hopeless grass once and for all, you’ll get rid of all the hateful work you’ve been putting into it. Mowing, raking, fertilizing, re-seeding the bare patches. You can even stop cursing the moles and gophers.

Right now, you’re doing more and more work for increasingly disappointing results. Wouldn’t you rather have more time to use the grass instead of tending it? Wouldn’t you rather have lawn that looks good enough for company, rather than embarrassing you? It’s time to stop worrying about water and start planning your list of summer activities. Here are some of things you could be doing on your lawn instead of maintenance:

  • Ball games
  • Dog games
  • Romping
  • Tumbling contests
  • Taking a nap
  • Star-gazing
  • Bar-be-cue or formal dinners
  • Poolside relaxation
  • Lawn parties
  • Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day

Artificial turf comes with benefits beyond extreme toughness:

  • No worn spots means no resulting mud to be tracked into your house by the kids or pets.
  • No mowing means no grass clippings to be tracked in, either.
  • Non-toxic and allergen-free construction – and no need for pesticides or fertilizers -- means no worries about health problems for kids or adults or pets.

Synthetic grass doesn’t absorb odors. And if your gang wants to play in the sprinkler, the water will drain through quickly without puddling. When they’re finished the grass will dry quickly, ready for the next activity.

Artificial turf is the grass of choice for playgrounds.

That includes your backyard as well as public areas. All fake grass is natural looking and natural feeling, but playground tiles are specially designed and installed to cushion falls from over 5 feet. This is the footing you want underneath your children’s play equipment. It’s the turf your homeowners’ association should be installing in the playground you’ve been planning, too.

Dogs also appreciate a nice play area.

As much fun as it is to play with your four-legged family members on the lawn, you can install artificial turf to create a dogs-only play area, too. The superior Maxx-Flow drainage system that enables your lawn to laugh off water and spilled drinks also enables pet urine to drain right through. And it’s easy to pick up or hose away waste. Your dog’s personal space stays fresh and comfortable

Why not have it all this summer. With artificial turf, you can finally achieve maximum curb appeal, with grass that’s equally gorgeous every day of the year. Plus you’ll get grass with maximum toughness to withstand any amount of summer use.
