5 Things You May No Longer Need After Installing Artificial Turf
While the look of a lush, green lawn or an immaculate natural turf sports field may be in high demand, it is just that—highly demanding.
Natural grass lawns and fields are insatiably needy.
You can’t enjoy your yard because you have to deal with the lawn instead. It’s a vicious circle of annoyance and frustration. You may not even have realized how much time and money you’ve been spending on natural grass upkeep until you’ve decided to make the switch to artificial turf.
If you’re ready stop devoting weekends to yard maintenance or blowing your budget on field maintenance, it’s time to discover the ease and simplicity of artificial turf. Artificial turf is much less demanding than natural grass, so you can spend more time enjoying it than trying to satisfy its needs.
Here are five things you’ll no longer need after installing artificial turf:
1. Lawn Mower
Installing artificial turf means no more mowing the grass. This significantly reduces your carbon footprint and money spent on gas and equipment maintenance. If you’re a homeowner, sell your lawn mower and use the cash to throw a backyard party! If you’re a field owner, sell your entire fleet of lawn maintenance equipment and reallocate the freed up funds to another area in need.
2. Bug Spray
There’s nothing like the irritation of uninvited bugs or that charming aroma of bug spray to stifle the beauty of a backyard hangout. This need no longer be an issue with artificial turf. When you install artificial turf, bugs have nowhere to live and nothing to eat. Mosquitoes will not be attracted to your yard because artificial turf levels out your property, preventing water from pooling.
In most cases, maintaining a natural grass field means using an arsenal of fertilizers, pesticides, and weed killing chemicals to keep your natural grass looking its best. Artificial turf fields and landscapes eliminate the need for these lawn care chemicals, keeping them out of the environment and significantly decreasing runoff—a main cause of water pollution.
4. Allergy Medicine
Millions of Americans suffer from grass allergies, making some of the most beautiful months of the year very uncomfortable. But it doesn’t have to be this way! For individuals that have grass allergies, artificial turf is the perfect remedy. Artificial turf doesn’t hold onto pollen like natural grasses, allowing you the freedom to enjoy your lawn and your players to perform at their best on the field.
Because synthetic turf does not require water to stay green, lush, and beautiful all year long, it is an easy solution to water conservation. Not only can you save a ton of water and a ton on water bills, your city may even grant rebates for installing artificial turf. Check with your local water district and city to see what they offer for your neighborhood or commercial application.
Instead of taking all of your time, energy, and money, artificial turf has a lot to give! And instead of finding hidden costs, you’ll be finding hidden savings when you decide to install artificial turf!”
